Avtodor forward:

“I'm very excited to be joining Avtodor again, as well as playing in the VTB League again. I know Avtodor has big goals every year, and I can't wait to compete for the team and the city of Saratov. Let's get back to the playoffs! Go Avtodor!”

Avtodor head coach:

“I am really happy and positive about Michah because he is a guy that I know him from some years between D-league, NBA summer leagues and Italy of course. He is a player who can help the team and give exactly what we are looking for, like speed, three-pointers, athleticism and, of course, experience. Downs is a multidimensional player who can play from 1 to 4 and he really feet in my idea of basketball, because Micah is a good offensive player but he can be also the best defender of the team.”
