Dmitry Kulagin signs new contract with Zenit

Guard Dmitry Kulagin, 30, has extended the agreement with our club for 2 seasons.

Thanks to an excellent game, Dmitry was selected in the starting five for the VTB United League Game as part of the Stars of Russia.

In November 2021, Kulagin was included in the broad squad of the Russian National Team to participate in the preparation for the 2023 World Cup Qualifiers, he took part in a game against the Icelanders, in which he scored 5 points and gave 4 assists.

As a member of Zenit, Dmitry became the champion of the VTB United League, having played in almost all playoff games.

Dmitry Kulagin, of Zenit BC guard:

I am sincerely glad to continue playing for Zenit! The previous season was not easy in every way, but we were able to overcome the difficulties, and together we wrote a new chapter in our common history! Thanks to the trust of the club management and coach Pascual, the fans and their support, I will be able to be part of the team and show my best basketball in the coming seasons. Let’s get new victories!

Alexander Tserkovny, Zenit BC CEO:

Dmitry just helped us out in the last championship, taking on the role of the main point guard from the very first games. Despite the fact that it was very difficult for him due to the fact that he had missed a whole season before, he not only coped with his role, but became a key factor in a number of games. I am sure that in the future Dmitry is able to improve in his condition and bring great benefit to the team.
