Georgios Bartzokas, BC Khimki head coach:
“Basically, it's a very important tournament for us. All the teams are very strong. We need just to evaluate our level right now and to show progress from game to game, from practice to practice. We gonna play with Gill and Todorovic who didn't play until now. We still don't have all our team because Shved and Zubkov won't play at this tournament. We have to test and check our progress against very strong opponents”.
