KC Rivers landed today (10/2) in Belgrade, Serbia in order to meet with his agent and talk with Crvena Zvezda regarding a deal.

“I feel good, I’m here to see my agent and discuss options, many options we have and hoping Zvezda is the option for us. But right now, we are here to go over everything and see what comes out to be the best terms”, Rivers told Telegraf at the airport.

The 31-year-old played in Italy with Reggio Emilia this season averaging 15.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists. In his last game with the club, Rivers posted 30 points and seven rebounds against Cantu but it wasn’t enough to pull the squad from the bottom of the Italian League standings (5-14 record).

He parted ways with the club following the game and posted a farewell message on his Instagram account: “Dear Reggio Emilia thank you for your hospitality. My time here was memorable. There were some good moments and some bad. But it’s life and each moment has a lesson. I sincerely appreciate the club for what you have done for me. Please continue to have faith in the team. Things will work out!!!”

Former EuroLeague champion with Real Madrid (2015) has five seasons in the elite European competition under his belt with various teams (Khimki, Panathinaikos. Bayern).
