23-year-old center, Arisona State University graduate and also BC Khimki foster child Ruslan Pateev signed a two-year deal with our team.
Rimas Kurtinaitis, BC Khimki head coach:
— Ruslan is a very assiduous player, he trains well and has good background. I'm sure he will be an important part of our rotation in VTB United League. He joined us in Slovenia and did his best there. So we decided to give him a chance.
