Unics Kazan to renew Popovic's contract

Unics Kazan's Management and coaching staff seem pleased with the games they got from Marko Popovic (185-G-82) this season as they have offered him contract extension. The Croatian International had a good year, helping Unics to reach the Playoff Semifinals, as well as the trophy in Russian National Cup. In Playoffs they were eliminated by the reigning champion CSKA Moscow, but Popovic was one of the integral parts of Unics in this series.

Popovic is glad he got 1-year extension and he will hope to justify this by playing even better next season. It remains to be seen if his teammate Kresimir Loncar (210-F-83) will be playing along him next year or Loncar will have to look for a new team. In 13 Eurocup games Popovic posted averages of 11.5 points and 2.6 assists per game. In Russian League, Popovic averaged 11.6 points and 2.6 assists in 25 League games.
