Based on Lithuanian laws, a citizen who receives a citizenship from another country automatically loses the Lithuanian one. That was the case with Bazdeikis as well. The most famous case is that of Zydrunas Ilgauskas who accepted the American citizenship at the end of his basketball career subsequently losing Lithuanian citizenship. “It will mostly depend on the President, not on us. We will present the request. What is the possibility for him [Brazdeikis], who was born in Kaunas, to become a Lithuania – I don’t know. This time it’s difficult [laughs]. I imagine, if you are born here, it is not your homeland, but your birthplace. “It is important that he wants it. Because in the past there were other names, as an example – one’s parent wanted it [for their son to play for Lithuania national team], but he did not want anything at all. With Brazdeikis it’s different – he wants [it], that is why we will work to make him Lithuanian”, former Lithuanian basketball legend said in an interview to TV3.
