Maxym Kornienko joins Ukraine after a gold-medal season with Superleague side Khimik Yuzhne. While limited to just 23 minutes per game because of the depth on the side's roster, Kornienko managed to contribute averages of 12.4 points and 6.3 rebounds in 36 contests. He has a consistent mid-range jumper and can drain a three if left open on the perimeter. He is also yet another shot-blocking threat in Ukraine's paint. Kornienko contributed to Ukraine's box scores with 6.0 points and 4.8 rebounds per game during EuroBasket 2013 and with 6.0 points and 5.8 rebounds during the 2014 FIBA World Cup.
