The American shooting guard is on his way to the Russian club, returning to Euroleague, after last year’s venture with Anadolu Efes.

Hapoel Jerusalem had decided to release Matt Janning, and according to Eurohoops sources, he has already found his new home in the club from Krasnodar. Lokomotiv Kuban was searching with a player with Janning’s characteristics, and coach Giorgos Bartzokas decided that he is ideal for the style he implements in his team.

Not surprising, since the 27 year old player from Minnesota is a splendid perimeter, and not only, shooter who fits more than nicely in Loko’s systems. He will be eligible to play in Euroleague in the second round of the Top 16.

Update: Lokomotiv Kuban now officially announced Matt Janning who signed a contract until the end of the 2016/2017 season.
