Avtodor head coach:
“I’m happy because now we have finally added one more player in our front court that we have been really needed. This will allow us to get deeper roster. Boris Savovic is a qualified basketballer with a huge experience who plays with energy and good efficiency at the power forward position grabbing a lot of rebounds. He is also able to cover the 5th position. Another important advantage is that Savovic came from the club that is also playing in the VTB League and we should benefit from that. Of course, everything depends on him, but I believe Boris will really strengthen our front court and help us to get better.”

Avtodor newcomer:
“I am very pleased to become a part of such great club as BC Avtodor having big traditions. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the club, the team and the whole organization. I’m thankful for the opportunity and looking forward for this challenge in my career. I hope we’ll have a successful season.”
