Janis Strelnieks has received offers from Khimki Moscow, Panathinaikos Athens, and Valencia according to Eurhooops sources. So far, Khimki has the best chances of acquiring the 29-year-old Latvian guard.

Following the completion of the 2018-2019 season with Olympiacos Piraeus, Strelnieks is a free agent. After spending the two previous seasons together, Olympiacos and Strelnieks don’t intend to renew their partnership.

Strelnieks averaged 8.8 points, 2.0 assists and 1.9 rebounds in 20:46 minutes over 20 games in the 2018-2019 EuroLeague. During February’s World Cup Qualifiers game of Latvia against Montenegro, Strelnieks sustained what was proven to be a season-ending injury on his left leg.
