Henry Dugat, Brandon Fields, Pavlo Krutous, Maks Konate and Kervin Bristol made this decision without warning the team and for this the club is considering the possibility to terminate their contracts.
As reported by Oleksandr Proshuta there could be a missed payments reason behind the decisions of the 5 players:
Huge scandal in Ukrainian bball. 5 players of Budivelnyk (reigning champ), including 3 foreigners (Dugat - reigning MVP of the league), Fields & Bristol) declined to go on road with team to Dnipro to play in Ukrainian Cup 1/4 finals. Budivelnyk can terminate their deals— Oleksandr Proshuta (@alex_proshuta) 26 dicembre 2017
Reason is obvious - debts for salaries. Big debts. As fas as I know, club wasn't even concerned about payments & players gave up to ask to solve situation and did that. It's huge blow on Ukrainian club basketball at all. Shame.— Oleksandr Proshuta (@alex_proshuta) 26 dicembre 2017
