ANDl Barça announced this Wednesday the signing of Rokas Jokubaitis for four seasons, so the young Lithuanian guard-guard will sign a contract with the Barça team until June 30, 2025.

The new signing of Barça, 20 years old and 1.93 meters tall, arrives after being named second best youngster in the 2020-21 Euroleague.
In the maximum continental competition he has averaged 7 points (39% in triples) and 2.5 assists in 21 minutes of play. In the domestic competition, Jokubaitis has scored 8 points this season and distributed 4 assists on average in 21 minutes played per game.
