Zalgiris, Jock Landale mutually agree to part ways

Australian big man leaves the team after one season.

Zalgiris big man Jock Landale will be playing in a different team next season. With the request of the player, Jock Landale and Zalgiris have mutually agreed to part ways, as the Aussie continues to seek out his dream of playing in the NBA.

A member of the Australian men’s national team signed a deal with Zalgiris last summer and had a running contract for next season.

After the two sides reached an agreement, the 24-year-old addressed the fans and the Zalgiris organization.

“I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for everything you’ve done for the past year. It was such an incredible experience coming to Lithuania and playing for such a historic club and a legendary coach. To the organization, I appreciate what you guys have done. Everyone’s got goals and ambitions, and you really helped me reach mine. You’ve got a fan in me for life.”

In his debut EuroLeague season, the 211 cm-tall center averaged 11.0 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 20 minutes of action.
