Sarunas Jassercabbages - Panathinaikos declined Jasikevicius's contract option this summer, ostensibly so that they could then re-sign him for a lower price. However, as things stand, this hasn't happened yet. Panathinaikos lost Vassilis Spanoulis to rivals Olympiakos - who apparently don't think Milos Teodosic and Theo Papaloukas is enough point guard quality - and yet while they haven't brought in another point guard to replace him, they do still have Nick Calathes, Dimitris Diamantidis and Milenko Tepic (kind of) who can play at the spot, as will as perennial depth option Dimitris Verginis. They're also linked with every free agent point guard going, from Bo McCalebb (who went to Montepaschi Siena) to Nando De Colo (undetermined), and even Rudy Fernandez (currently the subject of an insane Anthony Randolph trade rumour).
Long story short, Jasikevicius is currently a free agent.

Jasikevicius is another former buyoutee, backing up another former buyoutee (Vassilis Spanoulis) who is now with Panathinaikos in Greece. He has played very little this year, missing much of the first half due to injury and then having to wait his turn in Panathinaikos' very deep rotation. He has played a combined 269 minutes all year, and is averaging 8.8 points and 2.6 assists per game in Greek league play. Saras also averaged 5.2 points and 2.5 assists in Pana's Euroleague campaign, but that's ended now.
