Petravicius quits BC Khimki17 february 2012

Lithuanian center Marijonas Petravicius leaves BC Khimki. The contract with Marijonas has been cancelled by mutual agreement. BC Khimki General Manager Victor Bychkov comments upon this situation.

Victor Bychkov:

– We pinned our hopes on Marijonas, he is a very strong player and just a nice guy. Unfortunately, he was taken ill with heavy disease. We sustained a pause, consulted with medical experts but the verdict is the following: now he can’t play and train. Having discussed the situation with Petravicius, we arrive at a conclusion that we had to part ways. Now the player undergoes medical treatment in Lithuania and we hope Marijonas will recover and will be able to continue his career.
