Tadas is a tough 27-year old that has continued to be involved in high-level competition through high-level teams and international play. He was part of the Lithuanian u18 and u20 national teams and participated in the Eurocup during the 2016/17 season with LKL side Lietkabelis. Within that season in the LKL, he averaged an impressive 37% from outside the three-point line.
Most recently, Tadas has competed with teams in both the Spanish LEB Gold League and French NM1 League.
Coach Darryl Wood had the following to say about his most recent addition to the team.
“We are excited to bring Tadas on board with the team. He brings some excellent experience to the roster having spent most of his time playing professionally in Lithuania, but also a year in Spain and a short time in France. He will add great value to what we have already within our roster.
He has grown up in a proud basketball nation and has excellent fundamental skills and ability to read the game, a very high IQ player that is an excellent shooter.
He will fit in well here in Glasgow and bring us another level of depth to our roster.”
Tadas had the following to say;
“I am looking forward to arriving in Glasgow and meeting my new teammates. I have heard a lot of good things about the city and I am looking forward to playing in front of the Rocks fans.”
