Fesenko Officially Signs With BC Donetsk

Jan 4, 2013 11:21 AM

Kyrylo Fesenko has officially signed with Ukrainian club BC Donetsk, the team announced.

RealGM first reported on Tuesday that Fesenko was finalizing agreement with BC Donetsk.

Fesenko’s new contract is flexible, and people close to the 7-foot-1 center believe that playing in Ukraine will allow him to log heavy minutes, prove himself and get into good basketball shape for a potential NBA training camp invitation next fall.

Fesenko had appeared in training camp with the Chicago Bulls this season and worked out for the Atlanta Hawks in late October.

A native of Ukraine, Fesenko, 26, has played five seasons with the Utah Jazz and Indiana Pacers, averaging 2.3 points and two rebounds.

Leaving his immediate NBA future in doubt, free agent center Kyrylo Fesenko is finalizing a contract agreement with Ukrainian club BC Donetsk, league sources told RealGM.

Fesenko’s agent, David Carro, confirmed the deal is close to being signed for Fesenko to end his NBA training to play in Ukraine.

Fesenko had been working out in Colorado for months and held out hope that he would return to the NBA at some point this season after training camp with the Chicago Bulls. He also worked out for the Atlanta Hawks in late October.

Fesenko, 26, recently returned to his native Ukraine. He has averaged 2.3 points and two rebounds over his five-year NBA career with the Utah Jazz and Indiana Pacers.
