Cavs' Ilgauskas Adpots Two Boys From Lithuania

By  | 

CLEVELAND (AP) - Cavaliers center Zydrunas Ilgauskas has adopted two young boys from his native Lithuania.

This summer, Ilgauskas and his wife, Jennifer, adopted the 4- and 5-year-old brothers from an orphanage in Ilgauskas' hometown of Kaunas, Lithuania. The 7-foot-3 center said the two children, Povilas and Deividas, do not speak any English and are adjusting to life in the U.S.

Ilgauskas said being a father has given him a new appreciation for some of his teammates with families.

With Shaquille O'Neal now a member of the Cavaliers, Ilgauskas, who overcame major foot injuries early in his career, will come off the bench this season.
