Krasny Oktyabr Volgograd added size and experience to its roster at once by signing veteran Dmitry Sokolov. The center spent the last two seasons with Unics Kazan. Sokolov (2.14 meters, 30 years old) averaged 4.4 points and 2.2 rebounds over 11 Eurocup games last season in helping Unics reach the Eurocup Semifinals. He played nearly his entire professional career with CSKA Moscow and Unics. With CSKA, Sokolov reached three Euroleague Final Fours, won four Russian League crowns and two VTB United League between 2009 and 2013. He also has a pair of Russian Cups he won with Unics. This season will be Sokolov’s sixth Eurocup campaign; he’s reached the quarterfinals three times and the 2014 Eurocup Finals.
