Alex Kennedy: As I tweeted before, Sonny Weems is back from overseas and is looking to join an NBA team. He played well abroad and has received interest.
Sonny Weems: I would like to thank the club for understanding. I want to thank Andrey Vatutin, Natalia Furaeva along with CSKA fans and my teammates for my time in Moscow. It was special. Now I want to try waters in the NBA but I don’t close the door for European basketball which I really like.
Nobody was expecting that with the American Forward Sonny Weems having a guarantee contract with CSKA until the summer of 2017. CSKA made the official announcement on Tuesday evening and the big news are here. He is leaving CSKA in order to get back to the NBA. Here you can read the official announcement of VTB Champions and what the player and Andrey Vatutin quoted. “Once Sonny Weems addressed the club his desire to try to get back to the NBA, our club decided not to prevent, taking into account how valuable Sonny was for the team past three years. The contract negotiations at NBA can start only after July 1, and CSKA was not able to wait until this time, so the parties agreed to terminate the contract now”
Nikos Varlas: Congrats to @SonnyWeems13 for his new deal with @CSKABasketball! Great player to enjoy in @Euroleague basketball
Darren Wolfson: (2) SF Sonny Weems is questionable (foot). Has an NBA out next summer. I could see Flip/Newton having interest. Belongs in league. #twolves
Weems, 27, returns to the USA as a key member of Russia’s CSKA Moscow and will play against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday and San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday in exhibition games with his mind set on returning to the NBA, potentially as soon as next season. “These two games won’t dictate whether I make my comeback to the NBA or whether I stay in Europe,” Weems said. “This season, that’s what will determine my future. But my resume so far has let coaches and GMs know that I’m ready to play in the NBA again.”

Alex Kennedy: Free agent Sonny Weems has signed a three-year deal with CSKA Moscow in Russia, sources close to the situation confirm.
Forward Sonny Weems (26 y.o., 198 cm) joined CSKA Moscow. The contract with the American player is signed for three years.
Since the Raptors recently withdrew their qualifying offer to Sonny Weems, the Knicks have “shown some interest,” according to his agent Roger Montgomery, who also represents Jeremy Lin. Montgomery also confirmed that the Knicks are interested in another one of his clients, Maurice Evans, who played for Mike Woodson in Atlanta from 2008 to 2010.
Emiliano Carchia: Despite the rumors, Roger Montgomery, agent of Sonny Weems, told me that the player is returning to the NBA
Alex Kennedy: CORRECTION: The Toronto Raptors withdrew Sonny Weems’ qualifying offer. Regardless, he’s an unrestricted free agent.
Snubbed by Allen and Terry, and unable to get an audience with several other established players, the Grizzlies’ road in free agency has narrowed with guards Willie Green, Jodie Meeks and Jordan Farmar now in their sights, according to sources. The Griz are said to also have interest in guards Sonny Weems and Jerryd Bayless. Russian point guard Alexey Shved was off the Grizzlies’ radar as of Monday with a source close to the situation insisting that a deal wouldn’t get done.
As for free agency, the Cavs have not confirmed their interest in veteran NBA point guard Derek Fisher, but another NBA source did. I think he will go somewhere he can win more than Cleveland. Some other possibilities include forward Anthony Tolliver, guards Jonny Flynn and Royal Ivey and swingman Sonny Weems.
A source close to the Grizzlies said the team will meet with former University of Arkansas guard/forward Sonny Weems on Friday evening. Weems, who has previously played for Denver and Toronto, spent last season with Zalgiris Kaunas in Lithuania.
Eric Koreen: As for qualifying offers to Bayless and Weems: no word yet. My guess is they are in danger. JUST AN EDUCATED GUESS.
Chris Broussard: Cleveland, New York have shown interest in Raptors’ restricted free agent Sonny Weems, sources say.
Sam Amico: Raptors SF Sonny Weems said to be drawing interest from Cavs. Weems a restricted free agent.
Forget Sonny Weems, please, he’s not in the mix (for the Raptors), Linas Kleiza is no more an NBA two than you are, Bayless and Forbes are question marks with one year left on their deals right now.
Alex Kennedy: Sonny Weems will return to the NBA next season. He’s a restricted free agent. Celtics, Pistons, Cavaliers and Clippers have shown interest.
The European experience of Sonny Weems is over. The American player reached an agreement with Zalgiris Kaunas to part ways after the season-ending ankle injury he suffered a few days ago. Weems signed with Zalgiris Kaunas last summer a one-year deal without NBA out and he showed his potential in the four competitions he has played this season.
