    So Rudupys is on it again.
    Off he goes,M Kuzminskas to Poland,and here he comes back,Butkevicius from Zalgiris again.As the LKL rules goes,Rudupys can still register another 4 players up till march .
    I love the way rudupys management handles situation allowing players to drift away,yet attracting decent names again and again(plus,all the players are lithuanians).
    Salenga signing for Zalgiris?Urbutis going to Italy and Kuzminskas going back to Poland- that's really something(less Kuzminskas) - they all managed to get better money and teams.
    Not sure about Sinica.
    They got Labuckas too,so no matter what,they still look good for third.
    And another thing i like about them - they never complain/Look at Siauliai -big guy Bowles leaving,and all this crap and excuses regarding him being special player etc.

    I was thinking Kuzminskas will be an exception, but no. He's rotting in Žalgiris (as all young talents). And he made a contract this year...

    The flick from the future...

    I have no doubt that loosing Salenga will affect the team big time.Semis in LKL now seems a bit far fetched.
    But who or what did Rūdupis receive from Žalgiris for Dainius Šalenga?

    Nothing at all. In the contract it was stated that D.Šalenga can leave the club if he gets a better offer until some specified (january? don't remember right now) date. Žalgiris offered a better contract. He left.

    That kind of thing would never be allowed in any league in North America. The LKL should mandate compensation in such cases, in effect a trade of some sort. Otherwise the rich teams will just get stronger and poor teams can never rise to challenge the big boys. That's bad for the competitive balance of any league.

    Well..otherwise it could have been much harder to sign him for Rūdupis. Šalenga knew he can play at higher level and he just needed a chance to show himself - he did that and Žalgiris added him then. Other weak teams which have no money can't do a thing to stop that...

    By the way, as reported by some media today, Žalgiris wanted to add Rashaun Broadus of Šiauliai just like they did with Šalenga. However Šiauliai didn't let him leave while Žalgiris just wanted to take R.Broadus without paying compensation/buy-out or doing something like that.

    It's not a good thing for either the LKL or Lithuanian basketball in general for Žalgiris and Lietuvos Rytas to completely dominate the LKL year after year. Changes should be made to introduce more competitive balance. Not allowing teams to raid each other's rosters with impunity would be a step in the right direction.

    Not paying a compensation, who do they think they are? They think that they can just take any player?

    Plus it's the playoffs. They CAN'T add anyone to their team.

    EDIT: Regarding imbalance, I think this year, the competition was much more intense - Zalgiris lost to Siauliai, Rytas lost to Rudupis and Siauliai. Teams that are considered inferior to the two dominant teams are upsetting the good teams. So, based on this season, I think the competition has leveled out a bit.

    They wanted to do that before the play-offs. Just it came out only now...

    Well, Lietuvos Rytas lost to Kėdainiai Triobet, too. And Žalgiris lost one game to Rūdupis in the BBL quarterfinals.
