Zabas attended St. Michael’s College School in Toronto before finishing high school at Canada Basketball’s National Elite Development Academy (NEDA).  He went on to play professionally at the age of 19, playing in Germany and England, before finally making his way to Sweden and now the Czech Republic.

Besides being last year’s scoring champion in Sweden, Zabas was sixth in the league in assists with 4.6, and fourth in the league in efficiency.

BK Pardubice finished last season in fourth place in the Czech regular season, while also making it to the second round in the EuroChallenge league.

“Evaldas is a player, who plays with great energy,” said BK Pardubice Head Coach, Jan Slowiak. “He is always trying to get his teammates involved, but can also take on the scoring responsibility on his own.”
