Simas Jasaitis Tau Ceramica remained busy on Monday, announcing the signing of sharpshooting forward Simas Jasaitis from Maccabi Elite Tel Aviv. Jasaitis (202, 25) joins coach Neven Spahija as Tau's summer arrivals from the Israeli champs. In fact, this will be the third team together in as many years for the pair, as Jasaitis also played for Spahija during the 2005-06 season at Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius. Jasaitis averaged 9.9 points in 23 Euroleague games for Maccabi last season, making 66.1% of his two-point tries and 40% from downtown. His 38 three-pointers made marked the 11th most in the Euroleague last season. Jasaitis posted 12.1 points on 48.9% three-point shooting in 25 Israeli League contests. The forward joins Pete Mickeal, who signed with Tau on Sunday, as the Spanish powerhouse's newest additions.
