Celtics center Nenad Krstic signs in Russia to play for CSKA MoscowPosted by Inside Hoops
Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston reports:
Celtics center Nenad Krstic has agreed to a two-year, euro6 million euro ($8.8 million) deal with CSKA Moscow, according to a report by the Russian International News Agency.
Requests to confirm the potential deal, which likely cannot be completed until Krstic’s NBA deal officially expires later this month, were not immediately returned by Krstic’s European management firm, Invictus Sports Group. Krstic joined Invictus late last month to manage his overseas opportunities.
Since the Celtics were bounced from the playoffs by the Miami Heat last month, there have been numerous reports of overseas interest in Krstic, who will be an unrestricted free agent. The Serbia native is no stranger to international ball and it should come as no surprise that he’d be interested in potentially playing there during an NBA work stoppage.
