Dmitry Kulagin Rumors

Dmitry Kulagin: NBA is my goal, it is the reason why I play basketball. And I am sure that sooner or later I will end up there. Right now agents are in talks with Sacramento about my role on the team. It is a matter of principle for me what the final offer will be like. If I get guaranteed playing time, I will take the offer. But to go to the NBA and be a benchwarmer there – I don’t see a reason to do it. I don’t want just to make it to the league, I want to play there. I don’t rule out that in order to better prepare myself I will have to stay in Europe for some time longer.
Russian shooting guard Dmitry Kulagin is receiving interest from the Sacramento Kings and is seriously considering coming to the NBA, a source told Yahoo Sports. Kulagin, 22, averaged 7.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists for Russia BC Triumph Lyubertsy last season. The 6-foot-6, 195-pounder, who was not selected in the 2014 NBA draft, is no longer draft eligible. He could be signed as a free agent, though his NBA team would be subject to buyout terms from his Russian team.
