It looks bad – really bad – for the only Lithuanian club still playing in the Euroleague. Rytas has been out of the Euroleague since last season, and it now looks like Zalgiris has big problems, which we have already discussed. After we thought Zalgiris was fine, we’ve gotten the news that Marcus Brown, one of the top Euroleague players, has left the club.
After head coach Rimantas Grigas left the club yesterday, it looks like Marcus Brown is also leaving and will fly to Tel Aviv to talk about a possible contract with Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv, according to Lithuanian and Israeli sources.
If Maccabi gets Marcus Brown, they will have a player with the title of “All-time Leading Scorer of the Euroleague.” Sounds great, doesn’t it?
