Three years after leaving Russia to go back to the NBA, Nenad Krstić is set move back to Europe and sign for CSKA Moscow.
The Serbia national team centre agreed to a two-year deal worth six million euros with the reigning Russian champions. Despite being targeted by other European giants, such as Olympiacos and Barcelona, the 27-year-old opted for the Reds given the amount of money involved.
This will be Krstić’s second stay in the Russian PBL after spending some months with Triumph Lyubertsy in 2008. His next stop after that were the Oklahoma City Thunder before signing with the Boston Celtics. Previously he wore the jerseys of the New Jersey Nets and Partizan. Last season Krstić averaged 8.1 points and 4.7 rebounds per game.
CSKA look to boost their squad after they had one of their worst ever seasons in the Euroleague by failing to reach the Top 16 stage.
