Krasny Oktyabr puts Perkins at point

Krasny Oktyabr added valuable experience to its roster by signing playmaker Doron Perkins for the remainder of the season, the club announced Tuesday. Perkins (1.89 meters, 31 years old) arrives from Laboral Kutxa Vitoria, where he averaged 2.9 points and 2.3 rebounds in 9 Turkish Airlines Euroleague games this season. He had his team's final 9 points in a critical road win against Galatasaray Liv Hospital Istanbul which eventually allowed Laboral to make it to the Top 16. Perkins previously played for Besiktas Integral Forex Istanbul, where he averaged 9.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.7 steals in 13 Eurocup games last season, helping his team reach the eighthfinals. Perkins has also played for Donetsk in Ukraine, Olympiacos Piraeus in Greece, Foshan Long Lions in China, Bennet Cantu in Italy, Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv and Maccabi Haifa in Israel, Euphony Bree in Belgium, EWE Baskets Oldenburg in Germany and Toyoya Alvark in Japan. Perkins lifted the Turkish Airlines Euroleague trophy with Olympiacos in 2013, even when he only saw playing time in the Top 16. He helped Alvark win the Japanese League in 2006 and won a Israeli League and two Israeli State Cups with Maccabi.
