Zenit, Pushkov stay together til 2023

After helping the team reach the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs last season, big man Anton Pushkov will continue for two more seasons with Zenit St Petersburg, the club announced on Wednesday. Pushkov (2.08 meters, 32 years old) averaged 1.6 points and 1.2 rebounds in a limited role last season, which was his sixth in a Zenit uniform. He arrived to St Petersburg in 2015 and has since played three 7DAYS EuroCup and two EuroLeague seasons with Zenit. He had debuted in the EuroCup with Khimki Moscow Region back in 2011-12 and was rewarded with that competition's title at the end of the season. Pushkov also won the FIBA Euro Challenge title with Krasnie Krilya Samara in 2013.
