“You saw Nando De Colo and Thomas Heurtel tonight,” Nicolas Batum said. “I think people in the U.S. don’t really know them. Those guys can really play. I mean, De Colo was the MVP of the EuroLeague, and Heurtel was the best prospect in EuroLeague, too. And we’ve got Rudy Gobert coming, and Joffrey Lauvergne, and Evan Fournier is pretty good, too. So, we have a lot of guys that have been drafted the last two years or so on good teams in the NBA. It’s going to be a different era, of course, but it’s still going to be good.”
“I am very happy to continue playing for CSKA”, De Colo said in the team’s official website after the renewal of his contract was announced. “It wasn’t a tough decision to take. I came back to Europe to play, to use the opportunities and carry more responsibility day-by-day. This is what I did, what I had here with the club. This year we had an amazing season. And this is what I want: to play, to do it for the best team in Europe and to be one of the leaders of this team. This is what is the most important for me, this is why I signed with CSKA”.
CSKA Moscow is the most succesful club in Europe when they sign the players they want, but De Colo is free agent and there’s no extension of his contract yet. How hard will be to keep the French star in Europe and keep him from returning to the NBA? Vatutin’s answer was honest: “We have said that we will talk with Nando de Colo after the end of the season. He knows how much we want to keep him in Europe and in Moscow and we will do what we must. Beyond that the point is 100% what he thinks and what feels more like a challenge. The answer to this question belongs to the player. He will decide and we will do what we must towards him. However, Nando is a player who wants to enjoy basketball”.
