Khimki adds Devin Booker to the roster16 july 2019

Khimki Moscow Region signed a one-year deal with American center Devin Booker, who played last three seasons with FC Bayern Munich. Welcome to the Khimki family, Devin!

Rimas Kurtinaitis, Khimki Moscow Region head coach:

“Devin Booker is a great center with a high percentage of realization in the offense. He has a good throw, and he fights well on the boards. Booker is one of those centers who charge more for their physical strength than for height. He is a very powerful and at the same time a very mobile player. I am sure that he will strengthen our team under the hoops”.

Devin Booker, Khimki Moscow Region center:

“I am very happy and excited. This is a new stage in my career with such a strong team. I look forward to meeting my new partners soon to start the season. This is a new challenge for me, and I am ready to give all my strength for the victories of Khimki”.
