Loko and Mantas Kalnietis extended the contract

Lithuanian NT player extended agreement with PBC Lokomotiv Kuban!

Season 2020/21 will be the fifth for Mantas in Krasnodar! The Lithuanian guard played for Loko in the seasons 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2019/20. With the team Kalnietis won the Eurocup and play in the first Euroleague in the club history, and also made a lot of good shoots and passes in the VTB United League!

Mantas is the best assistant in the history of Loko, he made 610 assists! He is made 141 assists in the 2019/20 season, which was the best number in the team.

The player’s new contract with Loko is valid until the summer of 2021.

Ginas Rutkauskas, vice president of PBC Lokomotiv Kuban

The desire to continue the cooperation of the club with Mantas was mutual. He is a high-class player, and he is also a fighter, a leader, both on the court and beyond. These qualities are as important as the skill and experience that he demonstrates in every game. He cements the team, energizes the team, creates the chemistry that helps unite youth and veterans around the main goal - to win.

Mantas Kalnietis, point guard of PBC Lokomotiv-Kuban

I am happy to continue my career at Loko. I feel that we didn't finish the job last season and we still have a bittersweet after last Eurocup tournament. I am hope that in the next season we will understand each other much better from the beginning. Loko fans, I believe that we will defeat the virus, see you in the fall in the Basket Hall and have a great 2020/21 season!
