Zalgiris product Grigonis comes back to Kaunas 11

Zalgiris Kaunas signed swingman Marius Grigonis to a three-year contract. A 24-year-old player is coming back to his hometown after 5 seasons abroad.

Grigonis arrives from German side ALBA Berlin, where he averaged 11.6 points on 47.5% three-point shooting in 16 7DAYS EuroCup games last season. He also tallied 3.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.

1.98 meters guard was similarly effective in the German League with averages of 12.0 points on 47.2% three-point shooting, 2.7 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.2 steals over 47 appearances.

A product of the Zalgiris youth academy, Grigonis returns home to play after spending time in Spain with Penas Huesca, Manresa and Iberostar Tenerife, the latter of which he helped win the 2017 Basketball Champions League, where he was named Finals MVP.

He is also a regular with the Lithuanian basketball team; he played at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, won a bronze medal at the 2013 U19 World Championships and a silver medal at the 2010 U16 European Championships.

    Nesuprantu … kam rasyti vietoj toupano jei jie skirtingose pozicijose zaidzia? Grigonis SG, su galimybe pazaisti kazkiek pg.. jis kuriantis zaidejas kuris is bedos gali pasiginti vs silpnesni SF, o tu cia nervuojies kitus klaidindamas…

    nes basketnews parase, kad walkupas yra vietoj tupano. o jis SF zaidzia tik is bedos, nes yra per zemas, mazas wingspanas ir pan. kai pernai bande royce o’neala paint, tai siemet minimum ponitkos tikejaus.
