Dmitriy Kulagin has made his name heard at youth European/World Championships. He was the star at the U18 European Championship in 2010 when Russia won silver, and then led the team to bronze at the FIBA U19 World Championship. Now it is time for Dmitriy to make a debut for the senior team. Kulagin has all the tools to become an elite European point guard. He is a very strong and quick player with an impressive vertical leap. He can score in a lot of ways but his off-balanced shot is perhaps the most noticeable thing in his arsenal. Kulagin also likes to create for his partners. He is a solid defender when focused on this part of the game. He spent last season in Krasnye Krylia, winning the EuroChallenge trophy and the Russian Cup.
