Lakers assistant coach Quin Snyder has accepted a job as an assistant coach for CSKA Moscow, becoming the second person to leave Mike Brown’s staff this summer. Snyder will be the lead assistant under Ettore Messina, who served as a consultant with the Lakers last season before returning to CSKA Moscow for a second stint as the club’s head coach. Snyder, 44, drew interest from two NBA teams this off-season and was a finalist for the head coaching job in Charlotte. He was also being considered for the Orlando Magic vacancy. Los Angeles Times

"This was a very difficult decision as Mike [Brown] and Mitch [Kupchak], and the entire organization, have been fantastic to work with, and while we're talking about one of Europe's elite teams, the Lakers are the highest caliber organization in the NBA and CSKA is the Lakers of Europe," Snyder said.
