UNICS Kazan announced on Wednesday that guard Isaiah Canaan will play with UNICS again next season. Canaan (1.83, 30 years old) was one of the team's key pieces in its run to the 7DAYS EuroCup Finals, scoring 14.1 points with 3.1 assists and 2.9 rebounds. His 62 three-pointers made last season were the most by any player in the EuroCup last season, and tied for second most in a single-season in competition history. Last season was his first on the European continent. Canaan has spent most of his career in his native United States, including parts of six seasons in the NBA with Philadelphia, Houston, Chicago, Phoenix, Minnesota and Milwaukee. Canaan posted career averages of 8.1 points and 1.9 assists in 235 games.
