Azovmash Mariupol have signed Dynamo St Petersburg center Grygorii Khizhniak.
The Russian side have decided to release the 31-year-old Ukrainian after being unable to guarantee him the amount of playing time he is seeking.
Ukrainian side Azovmash have made some changes to their squad following their elimination from the EuroCup this week.
Two of their international guards, Israel's Lior Lubin and Serbia & Montenegro's Miroslav Beric, have left the club, with Greek floor general Panagiotis Liadelis arriving as a replacement.
Azovmash won 97-88 at Privatbank EKA AEL Lemesos but suffered the cruellest of exits from the EuroCup on Tuesday when DKV Joventut and BC Khimki advanced to the quarter-finals on goal difference.
Kenan Bajramovic had 26 points and Khalid El-Amin 24 for the Ukrainian side, who won for the fourth time in six Group L games.
Russian side BC Khimki grabbed top spot in Group L of the EuroCup with a home win against Ukrainian side Azovmash Mariupol on Tuesday night.
Khimki's 72-65 win increases their record to 4-1 in the round II of the competition, while Azovmash fall to 3-2.
