23-year-old Russian guard Timofey Gerasimov has returned to Nizhny Novgorod.
Last season Timofey spent mainly in the farm team of Lokomotiv-Kuban, playing in Superleague-2. In this team, he received an absolute credit of trust from the coaches – 33 minutes on average per match – and became the absolute leader in the team in terms of performance – 24.3 points (39.5% – three-pointers), the second in rebounds – 8.2 and second in assists – 4.4.
Three times during the season, he became the best player of the week in Superleague-2, and the portal eurobasket.com awarded him the title of Best Guard 2019-2020 and placed him in the top five of the entire championship.
In the summer of 2017, Gerasimov joined the Russian U-20 team. He scored 8.3 points on average in seven FIBA European Championship Division B games.
In June 2019, the guard was invited to the RBF open camp, where the coaching staff of the Russian national team was looking at the nearest reserve.
