Guard Denis Zakharov, 29, has extended his contract with our club for 2 more years.

Denis took part in 25 games of the VTB United League in the last championship, and in 79 games in two years overal.

Denis Zakharov, Zenit BC Guard:

I am very glad that our journey with Zenit BC continues, we have already achieved something in these two years, but I hope that the best is yet to come. Thanks to the management and coaching staff for their trust and the opportunity to be a part of the club.

Alexander Tserkovny, Zenit BC CEO:

Denis is a versatile player who at a key moment has more than once become a kind of X-factor for Zenit. He helped us in both seasons when there were problems with point guards, he could score points in in the clutch when the whole team just didn’t have a shot. And the victorious ending of the decisive game of the final series was not without Zakharov and his hit at the key moment.
