    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."

    Default Kyrylo Fesenko leaves Ukraine National Team

    From Salt Lake Tribune"

    http://www.sltrib.com/jazz/ci_13146941

    "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."
    EugeneUkraine, any info on this?

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