Here’s with an update on guard Alexey Shved, who played in the NBA from 2012-15, spending time with the Timberwolves, Sixers, Rockets and Knicks:

One of the best scorers in Turkish Airlines EuroLeague history has pledged himself to his club for three more years with the announcement that Khimki Moscow Region and Alexey Shved have signed a contract extension. Shved (1.98 meters, 31 years old) averaged 21.4 points and 6.2 assists in 26 EuroLeague games with Khimki last season. He ranked second in scoring, trailing only Shane Larkin of Anadolu Efes Istanbul (22.2 ppg.). Shved’s 6.2 assists per game placed him third in the competition. Shved was the 2017-18 EuroLeague Alphonso Ford Top Scorer Trophy winner after tallying 21.8 points over 34 games that season. His 740 points scored and 107 three-pointers made in that campaign remain single-season EuroLeague records.
