Lithuania’s new boss Kestutis Kemzura has named Valdemaras Chomičius, Robertas Kuncaitis and Donaldas Kairys as his assistant coaches.

“I have chosen these people because I really appreciate their professional skills,” said Kemzura, who replaced Ramunas Butautas at the helm after EuroBasket 2009.

“The main criteria for selection of assistants was professionalism.

“In addition, I have worked with these people, interacted a lot on basketball and our basketball philosophy overlaps.

“Coaches will be designated areas of activity, but there will be teamwork and a lot of debate.”

Lithuania also have a new physical fitness trainer in Evaldas Kondratavičius.

The Lithuanians had a disappointing EuroBasket 2009 but last month received a wild-card to play at the 2010 FIBA World Championship.
