"I am very satisfied. This will be my first career stop in Russia and I am looking forward to it. I liked the arena a lot. Both the court and the locker rooms are of the highest standard. I met my teammates and the coaching staff, truth to be told I did not know any of the guys from before. Nevertheless I'm sure I will not have any problems communicating as most of the players have the same age as me."
