Pavel Antipov penned a two-year deal to return to Nizhny Novgorod, the team announced Monday.

Antipov, 29, last played for Nizhny Novgorod in 2019-20 and previously in 2010-11. His third stint will include the Basketball Champions League, besides the VTB United League.

The Russian forward is coming off the completion of his third stop at UNICS Kazan. He registered 4.2 points per appearance across the VTB and EuroCup.

Dmitry Khvostov has already made his way back to Nizhny Novgorod. Mikhail Kulagin and Speedy Smith are the other summer reinforcements so far.

The Russian team is part of a packed Group C of the BCL Regular Season alongside JDA Dijon, Unicaja Malaga, and Lavrio Megabolt.
