Career: Neptunas Klaipeda (Lithuania-LKL, 1996-99), Lietuvos rytas Vilnius (Lithuania-LKL, 1999-2003), Tau Vitoria (Spain-ACB, 2003-05), New Orleans Hornets (USA-NBA, 2005-06).

Headed to the NBA after two successful seasons with Tau Vitoria, Arvydas Macijauskas was at the top of his game. But in a matter of weeks, things quickly turned around for the spectacular guard. First, he was injured during a friendly game in Serbia on his way to the EuroBasket with Lithuania. A ruptured muscle in his leg forced him to withdraw from the European tournament. Needless to say, his presence there would probably have made a huge difference for Lithuania, who managed to finish fifth without many of its best players. Following that disappointing episode, Macijauskas started training camp with the Hornets in Oklahoma City.

Coach Byron Scott, who wasn't a fan from the start, never really gave him the opportunity to show his game. Scott didn't want to let such a poor defender on the court too long. After such a disappointing year, Macijauskas will probably be highly motivated to remind everybody the kind of offensive player he his, always able to light the scoreboard from whatever distance.
