Mindaugas Kuzminskas signed a deal with Pinar Karisyaka Izmir, the Turkish club officially announced.

Kuzminskas played for Zenit St. Petersburg last season, but the team was kicked out of the 2021-22 EuroLeague season after Russia invaded Ukraine in February.

In April, the contract between the Lithuanian and Zenit was terminated.

The 32-year-old player averaged 5.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 4.8 EFF over 22 EuroLeague games.

He is coming off a successful FIBA EuroBasket 2022 from an individual standpoint. Kuzminskas registered 10.0 points, 2.5 rebounds, 0.7 assists, and 8.2 EFF.

The Lithuanian forward shot the ball by 50% from downtown, making 11 triples in 22 attempts throughout six matches.

Lithuania fell short against Spain in the EuroBasket Round of 16.
