Victor Vladimirovich Khryapa (alternate spelling: Viktor) (Russian: Виктор Владимирович Хряпа, born August 3, 1982) is a Russian professional basketball player for CSKA Moscow of the VTB United League. Standing at 6 ft 9 in (2.06 m), he plays at the power forward and small forward positions.
Khryapa was the 22nd overall selection of the 2004 NBA Draft. He was chosen by the New Jersey Nets and then subsequently traded to the Portland Trail Blazers for Eddie Gill. Then on June 28, 2006, he was traded to the Chicago Bulls along with Tyrus Thomas, for the rights to LaMarcus Aldridge.
In February 2008, the Chicago Bulls bought out Khryapa's contract after the forward expressed frustration with his lack of playing time. He had appeared in just nine games in the 2007-08 NBA season to that point, averaging 3.6 points per game and 2.2 rebounds per game.
Khryapa intended to return to Russia as a member of CSKA Moscow, and signed with his former club on February 12, 2008, on a four and a half year contract. With CSKA he won the Russian Championship in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011, the VTB United League Championship in 2010 and the Euroleague Championship in 2008. In May 2014, he was named to the All-Euroleague Second Team of the Euroleague, second consecutive in his career.
Russian national team
Khryapa has been a member of the senior men's Russian national basketball team, winning the gold medal at the FIBA EuroBasket 2007. He also participated in the 2002 FIBA World Championship, the FIBA EuroBaskets of 2003, 2005, and 2011, and the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympic Games, where Russia won the bronze medal. He was also included on the Russian national team roster for the 2010 FIBA World Championship, but did not play due to injury.
