Extractions: INDIANAPOLIS Former European star Sarunas Jasikevicius will sign with the Indiana Pacers on Thursday, his agent said. Advertisement Jasikevicius, a 6-foot-4 point guard from Lithuania, agreed to a three-year deal with the Pacers in July but couldn't sign the contract until the new six-year NBA collective bargaining agreement was finalized last week. His agent, Doug Neustadt, said Wednesday that Jasikevicius planned to be in Indianapolis on Thursday to sign the contract and to attend a news conference at Conseco Fieldhouse. He earlier said the 29-year-old Jasikevicius, who helped Maccabi Tel Aviv win its second straight Euroleague title last season, turned down offers from Cleveland, Utah, Seattle and Portland. Pacers spokesman Jeff McCoy wouldn't comment on the signing but confirmed there was a news conference scheduled for Thursday about a free agent. In Cleveland, Jasikevicius could have joined fellow Lithuanian Zydrunas Ilgauskas a year after he was the best man at Ilgauskas' wedding. Instead, he picked the team with a better chance for a championship, Neustadt said.
Extractions: Free-agent point guard Sarunas Jasikevicius, considered Europe's most NBA-ready player, has agreed to a three-year contract with the Indiana Pacers , his agent said Monday. Advertisement Jasikevicius turned down offers from Utah and Cleveland, agent Doug Neustadt said. If he had signed with the Cavaliers, the 6-foot-4 Lithuanian, who helped Maccabi Tel Aviv win its second straight Euroleague title last season, would have been reunited with Cavaliers All-Star center Zydrunas Ilgauskas. Jasikevicius was the best man at Ilgauskas' wedding last year. "It was an extremely tough decision and one he labored over for several days," Neustadt said. "He saw Cleveland as an up-and-coming team and it would have been great to play with 'Z.' But he sees Indiana as a tested playoff team and one that can win an NBA championship in the next few years." Jasikevicius should help the Pacers offset the loss of Reggie Miller, who retired after last season. Indiana, knocked out of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals in six games by Detroit, also will get Ron Artest back from suspension next season and will be among the favorites to win it all.

Extractions: Sarunas Jasikevicius :: Mr. Lith Sarunas Jasikevicius :: Mr. Lith Lithuanias got the most beautiful women in the world, the tastiest beer, and right now the best basketball team in EuropeI will try my best for this to never change. Sarunas Jasikevicius, MVP of the 2003 Eurobasket championships in Sweden, is proud of his country. And he should be. Counting only 3.8 million people, tiny Lithuania won the European title in September, defeating Spain, 93-84, in the final. In America, everybody loved Magic and Jordan, the former U. of Maryland guard explains. But here in Lithuania, our idols were Sabonis, Marciulionis and Kurtinaitis. They inspired people to play basketball. More and more people brought their kids to basketball academy. There is a big tradition in Lithuania and Im happy my generation was the one able to win a championship. Lithuanian ballers arent the best individual talents in Europe, nor do they possess incredible athleticism. Their game is all about fundamentals: cutting, pick and rolls, sharp outside shooting and helping on defense.

Complete Olympics Coverage ATHENS, Greece (AP) Passed over by every NBA team and known mostly for his last-second miss in Sydney, a Lithuanian guard finally made a name for himself: Sah-ROO'-nis Yah-seh-KEH'-vih-shuhs. Sarunas Jasikevicius, whose off-target 3-pointer kept his team from pulling off the biggest upset of the 2000 Games, didn't miss when it counted Saturday night in a thrilling 94-90 victory against the United States. He scored 28 points and hit three in a row from behind the arc as the fourth quarter wound down, including a rare four-point play that put his team ahead to stay. "This is, in a way, an incredible win, and in a way it doesn't mean anything," Jasikevicius said. "What does this mean if you don't win a medal? We beat the States. So what? We came here not to beat the States or any other team, we just came here to fight for the medal."
