Gonzaga signs son of former NBA big man Arvydas Sabonis

SPOKANE, Wash. — Gonzaga has signed 6-foot-10 forward Domantas Sabonis, the 17-year-old son of former NBA center Arvydas Sabonis.

The Bulldogs on Thursday announced Sabonis has signed a letter of intent. He joins an incoming class that includes guards Josh Perkins, Silas Melson and Bryan Alberts.

Coach Mark Few says Sabonis is a skilled basketball player who should make an immediate impact on the program.

Sabonis was born in Portland when his father played for the Trail Blazers.
