Mateusz Ponitka, Forward of PBC Lokomotiv Kuban

- I'm happy to have a chance to play for Loko. I'd heard that the team was interested in me earlier but my transfer failed. Now it has happened and I can't wait to come to Russia. I know that Lokomotiv Kuban is a great organization. I know the coach and I'm sure that we will become a serious competitive team. I can't wait to play in the VTB United League and EuroCup.

Stanislav Momot, Team Manager of PBC Lokomotiv Kuban

- Mateusz is a good three who is well-known in Europe and eager to fight for trophies. At the same time, he is only 24 and he has a lot of space for progress. He is a player who always do his best. He can help us on both ends of the court.
