Rihards Kuksiks

BC Nizhny Novgorod (Russia-VTB) has landed Latvian forward Rihards Kuksiks (197 cm, Arizona State’11) for the remainder of the season. Nizhny Novgorod will be the third team he will be playing for this 2014/15. He began the season in his home Latvia playing for BK Jekabpils (LBL). Rihards played two games for them in the Baltic league and averaged 16.0 ppg and 3.5 rpg. In the domestic Latvian league he logged eight games and was able to average 15.0 ppg and 4.6 rpg. In January 2015 Kuksiks moved to Avtodor Saratov (Russia-VTB United League). It was brief and not so fruitful run for him. He failed to score in both his games in the EuroChallenge, while also averaging just 1.0 ppg and 2.0 rpg in his two games in the VTB United League.
