Playing career[edit]

Born in Kaunas, Sabeckis started his professional career in JAZZ-Diremta, where he played in RKL and NKL leagues (third and second division). In 2013/2014 season he moved to Sūduva-Mantinga alongside his brother Deividas. In 2015/16 season Sabeckis won gold medals with the team and was named NKL Finals MVP.[1]

In 2016/17 season he signed with Šiauliai of the LKL. On 23 April 2017 in game against BC Vytautas, Sabeckis recorded 20 points, 13 assists, 7 rebounds, 6 steals, and 37 efficiency points.[2]

After a breakout 2017/2018 season, in which Sabeckis led LKL in assists, he was signed by Žalgiris on August 6, 2018.[3] On October 31, Sabeckis was loaned to German club MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg for the rest of the season. [4] After a tumultuous year plagued with roster changes, and being out with an injury for almost three months, Sabeckis left the team on June 3, 2019, along with three more players.[5]

On July 21, 2019, he parted ways with Žalgiris and signed with Croatian club Cibona.[6][7]
