TOAlthough still halfway to its goal for this season, which is to win everything, Barça is beginning to think about the short-term future and is already moving towards the next season. With the idea that Leandro Bolmaro will go to the NBA, the Catalans have already set their sights on the Lithuanian guard Rokas Jokubaitis as reported by journalist Donatas Urbonas.
Apparently, although Jokubaitis has a contract with Zalgiris, there is already a negotiation between the two clubs for Barça to pay somewhat less than the player’s termination clause in exchange for part of the base’s rights when he leaves for the NBA, something that will happen soon. Jokubaitis is one of Jasikevicius’ favorites, with whom he coincided at Zalgiris, especially considering that Barça’s number 1 option, Kevin Pangos, will almost certainly renew for Zenit.
In addition, Barça has opened the door to Víctor Claver, a player that Jasikevicius has barely had since he recovered from his injury. Claver continues to have an excellent line-up and teams such as Baskonia or Valencia have been interested in the situation of the player who is likely to leave the Barça team this summer. And it will not be the only one.
