Zenit extends Landry, Koshcheev
Zenit St. Petersburg kept two players in its frontcourt that have helped the team reach Eurocup eighthfinals last season, signing center Kyle Landry and forward Andrey Koshcheev to one year extensions on Saturday. Landry (2.07 meters, 29 years old) has come off the bench as Zenit's sixth man in Eurocup last season, posting 9.8 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.2 steals per game. In the VTB League action Landry averaged 10.8 points and 6.4 rebounds. He started his professional career with Sportino in Poland, also played for Dexia Mons in Belgium and Prostejov in the Czech Republic before joining Triumph Lyubertsy in 2011, which means this will be his fourth season with the club. Koshcheev (2.06 meters, 28 years old) started more than half of 13 Eurocup games he played last season, averaging 6.0 points and 4.2 rebounds, while posting 8.3 points and 3.8 rebounds in the VTB League. That was his first season for Zenit, as he previously professionally played for Ryzan and Spartak St. Petersburg.
