We found ourselves in a very complicated situation after missing Ryan Broekhoff 1.5 days ahead of the end of roster addition in the League. Signing Maciulis will strengthen our potential in the VTB United League. Jonas is an experienced and tough player with leadership skills. I’m sure he will show his best in key games.

I’m happy that Loko has invited me to be a part of the team so quickly. I hope that I will help the club to win trophies and be effective on the court.
