Career highlights and awards

Michailas Anisimovas (born October 11, 1984) is a Ukrainian–Lithuanian professional basketball player currently playing for BC Budivelnyk.

Lietuvos Rytas[edit]

After an impressive season in Klaipėda, he was signed by Lietuvos rytas in 2007. He was initially expected to develop his game to higher level to become one of the better centers in Lithuania, but failed to impress the head coach and was receiving only a few minutes per game. He improved his statistics in the 2008/2009 season, and became a more reliable bench player. In September 2009 he was signed by Budivelnyk Kiev.

Personal life[edit]

Michailas Anisimovas currently holds a dual Lithuanian and Ukrainian citizenship.[1]
