After undergoing the mandatory medical tests, Zalgiris Kaunas went straight to the court to start its preparation for the 2019-20 season in Kaunas. Coach Sarunas Jasikevicius got most of his group, starting with newcomers Zach LeDay, Alex Perez and Nigel Hayes. Marius Grigonis, Martinas Geben, Paulius Jankunas, Lukas Lekavicius and Edgaras Ulanovas are still with the Lithuanian national team preparing the upcoming World Cup in China.
The rest of the group got together at Zalgirio Arena as the first big game of the preseason will arrive on September 8 as Zalgiris faces Kalev/Cramo in Tallinn, Estonia. The team will also travel to Turkey to take part in the Gloria Cup to face teams like Anadolu Efes Istanbul or Galatasaray Doga Sigorta Istanbul.
