Playing career[edit]

Club career[edit]

Pačėsas was the Polish League MVP, in 2004.

Lithuanian senior national team[edit]

Pačėsas was a member of the senior Lithuanian national team that won bronze medals at the 1996 Summer Olympic Games.

Coaching career[edit]

In December 2015, Pačėsas signed on as the head coach of Lietuvos rytas.[1][2] He helped Rytas win the King Mindaugas Cup, defeating rivals BC Neptūnas and BC Žalgiris, but suffered a disastrous 3rd place finish in the LKL after losing to Neptūnas in the semifinals. In June 2016, he extended his contract for one more year.[3] The 2016-2017 season was even more disastrous, as the team struggled in the LKL and failed to qualify to the Eurocup playoffs. In February 2017, Pačėsas resigned, and left Lietuvos rytas.[4]
