Austin Hollins returns to EuroLeague as a member of Crvena Zvezda as the club officially announced.

Per Zvezda: The former Zenit player signed a one-year contract with the Red and Whites on Monday, and he will be a great reinforcement for the team for the 2021-2022 season.

Austin Hollins was born on November 9, 1991, and plays primarily as a guard and forward. He is 193 centimeters tall and in addition to his great offensive potential, he is known as an excellent defensive player who made his first serious basketball steps at the University of Minnesota under the famous coach Tabi Smith.

Austin Hollins comes from a basketball family and he is the son of the famous NBA player and coach Lionel Hollins who won NBA titles as a Portland player in 1977 and the assistant coach of the LA Lakers (2020).

His son Austin took a different path. In Europe he gradually built his name with his game, but also with his attitude and behavior, playing in France and Denmark, and having excellent performances in Germany in Giessen and especially the team Rasta Vechta (2018-2019) brought him the opportunity to tries in the Euroleague. After a great two-year run at Zenit (2019-2021), Hollins is ready for a new challenge and the Red and White jersey!

Hollins is the seventh reinforcement of the Red Star in the summer transfer window after the arrival of Ivanovic, White, and the return of Nikola Kalinic, Luka Mitrovic, Stefan Lazarevic, and Nate Walters.

With the gathering of the roster and the medical tests scheduled at the end of this week, KK Crvena Zvezda will officially start preparations for the new season in which they will compete on four fronts: Euroleague, ABA league, domestic cup, and the domestic league.
