Club history

  • In the 2007-2008 NKL season, BC "Naglis-Adakris" was only one step away from the chance to enter Lithuania basketball super league LKL as they won Silver.
  • The 2008-2009 NKL season was unsuccessful for BC "Naglis-Adakris" as they left only seventh in the league.
  • The dream of LKL for BC "Naglis-Adakris" came true in the 2009-2010 NKL season when BC "Naglis-Adakris" became NKL champions and won challenge for LKL slot against BC Aisčiai (actually this match was never played because BC Aisčiai was suspended their activities that season).
  • The debut 2010-2011 LKL season was very unsuccessful for „Naglis“ as they took only 12th place from 13 places in regular season. Because of that „Naglis“ played survival match against NKL champions „Pieno Žvaigždės“ (if „Naglis“ would lost that serie, „Pieno Žvaigždės“ would get „Naglis“ slot in the Lithuania super basketball league LKL). On 26 April 2011, „Naglis“ won first transition serie match against „Pieno žvaigždės“ in Klaipėda. However, on 29 April 2011, „Naglis“ lost the second game of the transition serie in Pasvalys. The final (third game) took place in Klaipėda, which BC „Naglis“ miraculously won by only one point with result 69:68 and automatically saved their place in LKL.
  • The 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 seasons did not fare better, as both times the team was at the bottom of the standings. The 2012-2013 season was in particualar a disaster, as BC Palanga lost all 20 of their games. During a game against BC Juventus, the team lost 36:96, with the 36 points being an all time low in the LKL. The team was relegated after the season.
  • For the 2014–2015 season the team moved to Vilnius and became BC Vilnius, after that one season in the capital, they moved to Panevėžys to become the second team of BC Lietkabelis.
