Dusko Ivanovic, BC Khimki head coach:

"I think Markel Brown is a solution for us. In summer, I was looking for him and now he is free. He’ll come and we’ll see. He is an athletic guy who can play positions one, two and three. It’s difficult for US players to come to Europe for the first time and probably he will need time to adapt but he has quality to play in our team".
