Lithuanian team Zalgiris Kaunas (LKL, Euroleague and VTB United) announced that Ibrahim Jaaber (187 cm, Pennsylvania’07) left the team due to his religious convictions. The American guard, who also holds a Bulgarian passport, wrote a letter to Zalgiris saying that he won’t play anymore in Europe.

Zalgiris said that the club will demand damages from the player for breach of contract. In college Ibrahim Jaaber was the Ivy League leader in assists and player of the year when he played at Pennsylvania. Following his graduation he signed his first professional contract with Egaleo AO from Greece. After that Ibrahim Jaaber went to Italy where he stayed until he signed with Zalgiris Kaunas.
