Augusto Lima leaves Zalgiris Kaunas, but he will not play for Real Madrid. The Brazilian center who has a contract with the “Whites” will be loaned to Besiktas for next season.

The two clubs have already a deal and only the paperwork remains. The 25 years old big man’s contract with Madrid ends in the summer of 2018, so at the end of the upcoming season if nothing changes he will be a free agent.

Lima was also a potential target of Baskonia, however, this scenario, which was linked also to Toko Shengelia’s move to Real Madrid, is officially dead for quite some time.

Lima averaged 4.6 points and 3.7 rebounds during 30 EuroLeague games last season as a me4mber of Zalgiris Kaunas.
