For now we have a roster like this:

    PG Leo+1, Waklup+1, Jokūbaitis (hope Wolters is gone)
    SG Grigonis,..., Uleckas
    SF Ulanovas +1,....., Jogėla
    PF .....,.....,Masiulis
    C Davies+1(buyout),....., Geben, Birutis

    I mean, I would like to stay everyone, exept Wolters and take SG/SF that can play PnR or PnP. Or just a better shooter overall. I look forward to two french man - Axel Bouteille and William Howard. One is good shooter and another one more athletic, better dribbling skills. Also, Giedraitis could be bought out, if he won't go to EL with ALBA. Then we could get foreigner to other spots. I would like if Thompson stay's, he is a beast on D. Very poor offensive game, but on D, he is like glue, that keeps everything together. Very strong legs. But he can't be main PF and Jankunas can't be main as well. So that's a decision we should think over. Giedraitis in, Thompson stays, White OUT, Jankunas stays, Masiulis on loan and new main PF in. Then We either keep Davies or get a buy out and get something like Lessort or McLean and then we keep Kavaliauskas and either Birutis or Geben. Ulanovas also stays, Leo, Milaknis and Walkup stays and we have a pretty good team, I think. But if White goes, Davies will go as well I thin, because they are bff. Roster I would like:

    PG Leo, Walkup(SG), Jokubaitis (more mins)
    SG Grigonis, Milaknis, Uleckas (Jokubaitis mins this season)
    SF Ulanovas, Giedraitis, Jogela(Maybe)
    PF Moulttrie(lithuanian coach said, that he is EL caliber player), Thompson, Jankunas
    C Davies(McLean or Lessort), Kavaliauskas, Birutis/Geben

    Nejuokauk, seni. Negalim likt izaidejo pozicijoj tik su Leo ir Thomasu. Westermannas linkes i traumas, taip, kad bent jau Lekaviciu butu privaloma susigrazint arba imti kita izaideja, Peyton Siva butu idealu. Ulanovui reikia pagalbos SF pozicijoj, William Howard, Elgin Cook butu variantai irgi. Daviesas dar turi kontrakta kitam sezonui, tai jei iseitu gautume solidzia ispirka uz kuria galetume paimt ar Lessorta, ar Mcaleana, o biski pasvajojant koki Mickey.

    Don't joke around, (old fellows?). We can't be left with only Leo(Westermann) and Thomas(Walkup) at the PG position. Westermann is injury prone it's true, but if there was now any possibility to reacquire Lekavičius or acquire another PG, Peyton Siva would be ideal. Ulanovas needs help at the SF position, with William Howard or Elgin Cook also being possibilities. Davies still has a contract for next season, if that occurs we'd get a solid buyout with which we could take Lessorta or Mcaleana(Maclean?), or fantasizing a bit someone like Mickey.

    Senis or seni (addressing the person) means "an old guy", but in spoken language or in this context it's a slang for "mate" or "dude".

    Oh, okay! I wasn't aware of the popular usage of the word "senis" (old man) these days.

    Pulling out all stops to qualfy late in the season with but six games to play will all be for naught if Žalgiris goes down easily against Fenerbahce. Žalgiris made the playoffs by the skin of their teeth; now it's up to them to demonstrate that they belong among the best teams in Euroleague this year.

    I think 30 games marathon was enough of demonstration

    Let me stress that today's game was precisely what I did NOT have in mind.
