Billy Baron and Zenit were already bound for the upcoming season but the sides decided to commit for one extra year ahead of time due to the great cooperation they’ve had so far.
Per Zenit Saint Petersburg:
Billy Baron is without a doubt one of the key creators of Zenit’s historic result. Already at the start of the sports year, our guard was recognized as the MVP of September-October in the VTB United League. He played 25 matches in the tournament, averaging 10.4 points, making 1.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists, and finishing with 9.3 points of efficiency.
Baron made an equally important contribution to the success of the team in the Euroleague: 39 matches, 9.6 points, 1.4 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 7.8 efficiency points on average per meeting.
General Director of BC “Zenith” Alexander Tserkovny:
– Billy Baron is a great combination of talent, professionalism and human qualities. With his arrival, we have a player who can leave the bench at any time, change the course of the match in our favor and bring a victorious result.
Despite the current agreement for the next season, Billy and I decided in advance to extend our cooperation for another year and signed a new contract.
Manos Papadopoulos, Sporting Director of BC Zenit:
– Billy Baron is the most important player on our team. His basketball qualities and character are a guarantee that he will play for Zenit in the next seasons.
Zenit BC defender Billy Baron:
– My wife and son and I are looking forward to being a part of the Zenit family for two more years. We love St. Petersburg, it’s good that we managed to come to an agreement with the club. I look forward to working with Xavier Pascual and his coaching staff in the future to continue the success we gained last season.
