BC Khimki adds American power forward Perry James Jones III to the roster. The contract has been agreed for one season. We welcome Perry to our family!
Pavel Astakhov, BC Khimki General Manager:
"Perry is quite a young player, but, on the other hand, he has NBA experience after three seasons with Oklahoma City Thunder. He's a versatile player and can close in fact three positions — from third to fifth. Jones is an ambitious guy and has some things to prove. I hope that Perry will make every effort to help our club to achieve its goals".
Dusko Ivanovic, BC Khimki head coach:
"Perry is a good player who can bring a lot for our team at the position four. He has a good shot; he can play open, one-on-one and low post positions. He runs well. I hope that he will bring variability to our attack. He will need time to adapt to Europe because European basketball is a little different. However, I think Jones is a good option for us".
