Baron (30, 1.88) appeared in all 34 EuroLeague regular-season games, coming off the bench. He averaged 9.6 points per game (47% 3-point shooting) and finished 4th in the EuroLeague in 3-pointers made (72). Billy Baron helped his team to a 20-14 record and a playoff berth. In the Playoffs, Zenit lost to FC Barcelona after a five-game series.

"Billy Baron is a great combination of talent, professionalism and human qualities. With his arrival, we have a player who can leave the bench at any time, change the course of the match in our favor and bring a victorious result," said Zenit General Manager Alexander Tserkovny.

Prior to joining the St Petersburg team, Baron played in Serbia, Turkey, Spain, Lithuania, and France.

"We love St Petersburg," said Baron in a team-released statement. "It's good that we managed to come to an agreement with the club. I look forward to working with Javier Pasqual and his coaching staff in the future to continue the success we gained last season."
