Russian side Khimki have officially announced the return of Jeremy Evans who has last played for the club in 2016. The 2012 NBA Slam Dunk Contest champion spent last season in Turkey with Darussafaka.

Rimas Kurtinaitis, Khimki Moscow Region head coach:

“Jeremy is a very athletic and fast player, who is good on rebounding, because last season we had some crucial problems with rebounds. I think Evans will help us a lot in this respect. He can play both fourth and fifth positions. I think very highly of Evans. He played well in Khimki couple of seasons ago, and last year in Darussafaka. So, we took a very good power forward, who will definitely strengthen our team”.

Jeremy Evans, Khimki Moscow Region forward:

“I’m ready to return to Khimki and have a better season than before. Can’t wait to represent the club that took care of me through a tough injury in my career. I have some unfinished business there and can’t wait to get started.”
