Draft Pick Gladyr Sets Example For Young Ukrainians

Sergiy Gladyr is sky high after being selected in June's NBA Draft.

The 20-year-old Ukraine sharpshooter was chosen by the Atlanta Hawks in the second round, though he doesn't expect to join the league next season.

"The good thing about a round two selection is that the team will most likely send you to Europe for one or two seasons to get the experience and to become a stronger player," he said to Basketball World News.

"I already have offers from Olympia, Toulon and a couple of Spanish teams. I would prefer to play in the Spanish league because it is very close to the level of the NBA game and a lot of players manage to go to the NBA after playing in Spain."

Since the draft, Gladyr has been working out with Mykolaiv's farm team in Ukraine.

His sudden rise in the game has had an impact on other players in Ukraine that he has been working out with.

"What I have noticed and what the coaches have told me is that the other players started to work a lot harder and started to take basketball more seriously," he said.

"They have seen a live example of what any of them can achieve. After all, I am the same kid who played with them in the same gym just a few months ago."

A key member of the Ukraine national team, Gladyr would like to play for his country next month in the Relegation Round when they go up against the Czech Republic, Hungary and Estonia.

Their first game is on August 5 at Hungary.

"I hope so," he said.

"I really enjoyed being a part of the team last summer. I hope that no matter which club signs a contract with me, they will understand that it will be highly beneficial for me.

"I hope to be in a position where I will not be asking for permission to play for Ukraine, but that I will instead be notifying I am playing for my country."

From Salt Lake Tribune"


"Following his benching in a game last week, Jazz center Kyrylo Fesenko(notes) has left the Ukrainian national team before the conclusion of relegation-round play in the European championships. Although he committed to playing for the national team instead of taking part in summer league with the Jazz, Fesenko did not see action Friday against Hungary and did not travel to Estonia for a game Monday. Russ Ridge, whose family helps care for the 22-year-old center in Utah, has spoken with Fesenko and said Monday that he was not injured, despite a story on the federation's Web site that suggested otherwise. Before leaving for the off-season, Fesenko talked about the criticism he'd faced in his home country for skipping national team duty the previous two years to play in summer league with the Jazz. However, Fesenko's playing time decreased so quickly in Ukraine that he saw just nine minutes of action in last Tuesday's loss to the Czech Republic. Three days later, he didn't play at all against Hungary."

He left the game to have a cigarette? That's hilarious/stupid.

Ukraine Appoint Cherniy As Men’s National Team Boss

Ukraine have handed the reins of the men's national team to BC Kyiv coach Vitaliy Cherniy.

The job has been vacant since Valentyn Melnychuk left after last year's Relegation Round games.

The Ukrainians avoided the drop into Division B and will therefore try to reach EuroBasket 2011 in Lithuania.

They will take on Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia, Hungary and Great Britain in qualifying games this summer.

Cherniy has done a good job with Kyiv, who are fourth in Ukraine's Superleague with 16 wins and eight defeats.

He's no stranger to the national team after serving as an assistant to Vitaliy Lebedintsev three years ago.

Olexandr Volkov, the president of the Ukraine Basketball Federation, said: "The aim is to advance to the EuroBasket Final Four and then to qualify for the Olympic Games.

"Cherniy has been appointed because he's done a great job of coaching BC Kyiv this season - the team that will be the base of the national team."

Cherniy is optimistic, but knows that numerous factors will determine whether or not Ukraine achieve their aims.

"The success of the team will depend on whether all players buy into my system," he said.

"It will also depend on whether everyone, including my assistants, who I need to carefully select, are going to be on the same page."

Ukraine will begin their qualifying campaign at home against the Macedonians on August 2.
