Ukraine: Kyiv Replace Greer With Jones

05 November 2005

Ukrainian champions BC Kyiv have signed Mark Jones to fill in for injury victim LaMarr Greer.

Jones, who appeared in 10 games for the Orlando Magic last season, is 30 years old and should be a steadying influence for Kyiv, the team that finished runners-up to Dynamo St Petersburg in the FIBA Europe League last season.

Jones will play for Kyiv on Tuesday in the EuroCup against Lokomotiv Rostov. Greer, Kyiv main offensive threat, got hurt in a Superliga game against Krivbas basket and is set to miss six weeks.

Kyiv and Lokomotiv Rostov have won both of their European games.
