Samara signed Sljivancanin and Hicks
CSK Samara covered the small forward position signing two new players, serbian forward Mladjen Sljivancanin(2.00-SG/SF) and american forward Eric Hicks(1.98-SF).
Sljivancanin played in Red Star Belgrade last season where he averaged 5.1 points and 1.4 rebounds last season in 26 games in the Adriatic League shooting at 34.9% from behind the arc.
Eric Hicks is a very strong and solid forward that although he stands only at 1.98m he can easily play at the power forward position in Europe due to his impressive athletic skills. He was the leading shot-blocker in Poland. In 40 games he averaged 13.6 points 7.5 rebounds and 2 blocks per game playing for Polpak in Poland.
