Drew Gordon joins Loko

American power forward/center Drew Gordon joined PBC Lokomotiv Kuban and is currently undergoing an in-depth medical examination.

Drew Gordon (204 sm, 112 kg) was born on July 12, 1990 in San Jose, California.

During his student years he played in the NCAA for University of California at Los Angeles and University of New Mexico.

Gordon’s professional career began in Partizan in the 2012/13 season. In March 2013 Drew left Belgrade and moved to Sassari. He started the next season in the Banvit, but after a couple of months he moved to Sassari again.

In the 2014/15 season Gordon played 9 games in NBA with Philadelphia, but played the bulk of the season in the D-League for the Delaware Blue Coates.

Then Gordon played in the championships of France and Lithuania, for Chalons-Reims and Rytas, respectively, and in 2017 signed a contract with Zenit St. Petersburg, with whom he spent a very productive season in the VTB League and EuroCup.

In the 2018/19 season Drew played in the G League for the Long Island Nets alongside Alan Williams.
In 2019 he returned to the VTB United League with Poland’s Zielona Gora, and after the pandemic he signed a contract with Avtodor Saratov. In the first half of the 2020/21 season in Saratov Drew played 13 games, averaged 8.7 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.

With Sassari Gordon won the Italian Cup and with Zielona Gora became the champion of Poland. Drew is a regular participant of the All-Star Games, in whatever championship he plays.

Welcome to Loko, Drew!

Evgeny Pashutin, head coach of PBC Lokomotiv Kuban

I am glad that our roster will be strengthened by experienced center Drew Gordon. He plays well on boards, defends well, cements the game in the paint. Drew will add the rotation of the big players we need. Together with Reggie Lynch, due to the absence of Alan Williams due to injury, our puzzle in the post will finally be formed. Together with Drew we can seriously increase the pressure on the opponents. I am sure that this player will add energy and power to the team both in defense and in offense.
