American point guard Dee Bost, who played last season for French side SIG Strasbourg, signed a one-year contract with BC Khimki. Welcome to the club, Dee!

Georgios Bartzokas commented upon the signing of Bost.

Georgios Bartzokas, BC Khimki head coach:

“Bost is in a very good age; he is a player who can play at both ends. At the same time, Dee is a very good defender and creator. He is a point guard, who can play set offense and also run the court fast. He has a great motivation to prove that he can be at the highest level. As a coach in the past I played many times against him; also, I tried to sign him when I was in FC Barcelona. So, right now we'll have an opportunity to work with him, and I'm very happy about this”.

Dee Bost, BC Khimki guard:

“I am truly honored to sign for BC Khimki and play for a coach like Bartzokas. Just want to thank him and management for this opportunity. I expect to work hard and win games. One day and one game at a time to get better. I’ve never played in the VTB League but I know there are some good teams in the league”.
