American point guard Chris Kramer signed one-year agreement with our club with an option for another season (1+1). Last two seasons Kramer played for Lithuanian side Rytas Vilnius, where he became King Mindaugas Cup winner. Welcome to the club, Chris!
Rimas Kurtinaitis, Khimki Moscow Region head coach:
“Kramer is a good player, I worked with him in Lietuvos Rytas a couple of seasons ago. He is very good, tenacious, physically strong guard with a high basketball IQ, who understands basketball well. Chris is a tall point guard, just as I prefer”.
Chris Kramer, Khimki Moscow Region guard:
“I'm very excited about joining Khimki and getting to compete at the highest level in Europe. Hopefully, we'll have a lot of success together. Also, it will be great to rejoin coach Kurtinaitis. I'm grateful for him pursuing and wanting me to join the club”.
