CSKA Moscow Rumors
Veteran Russian center Sasha Kaun embarked on a mini-tour of Cleveland on Monday, league sources informed Northeast Ohio Media Group. His visit was for the purpose of house hunting, among other things, sources said.
Kaun is to depart town on Tuesday and it is anticipated that a deal will not be finalized before his exit, I’m told. Kaun’s scoping out of the city almost certainly ensures he’ll finally make the jump to the NBA after playing seven years professionally for European powerhouse CSKA Moscow.
Joel Freeland has now officially signed a 2-year deal with CSKA Moscow, the Russian club announced today. The GB forward became an unrestricted free agent after his contract with Portland Trail Blazers expired and is now making a return to Europe.
I am really excited and happy to come back to Europe and to sign for such unbelievable team like CSKA Moscow, said Freeland. It is a privilege to be a part of this great organization and I will definitely not take it lightly, I am going to work hard to help my team reach its goals.
