CSKA Moscow Rumors
Speaking about EuroLeague, Milos Teodosic one of the league’s superstars and a fellow Serbian baller has openly expressed his ambition to become a part of the best league in the plant, if the circumstances are right for him. “He can play everywhere he wants to! He’s a a great, very smart player,” says Boban Marjanovic. “He has a nice touch, a great look. He won’t mistake someone for somebody else (laughs). He can find a great opportunity here.”
“2016 was my best year” Teodosic told Mozzartsport (he won EuroLeague, VTB League and a silver medal at Olympics). “I will go to the NBA for sure, but I still don’t know when, in which club and on what terms. We’ll see. CSKA Moscow certainly has an advantage in the negotiations of a new contract “ the point guard added. “Offers from Grizzlies, Jazz, Spurs or Rockets? I did not get any offers from them. I don’t know who said that”.
Teodosic was asked his thoughts about the young European players that are “rushing” to the NBA even if they know they won’t have playing time: “For me this is an error. I like to play and I don’t like to sit on the bench and I would not agree on any contract if I have to sit on the bench. This is my condition for going to the NBA.”.
Andy Larsen: On Milos Teodosic: I know that the Jazz like Teodosic, and Teodosic likes the Jazz & Quin Snyder. See for example: http://bit.ly/2jcejmA . On the other hand, Jazz have strongly denied to me that they have terms in place with a player under contract with another team.
CSKA Moscow announced on Thursday morning the arrival of big man Jeff Ayres for the upcoming campaign. Ayres (2.06 meters, 29 years old) spent last season in the D-League with the Los Angeles D-Fenders, where he averaged 16.2 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists, earning him a spot in the All-NBA D-League First Team.
Perhaps it’s a statement that also vindicates De Colo’s decision to sign a new, multi-year contract with the Russian powerhouse and not pursue a possible return to USA. “Well, I had already made my decision so it doesn’t matter. I really wanted to sign again with CSKA Moscow. I feel really great in the team right now. It was important to renew with them because I got all the responsibilities I want in the team. CSKA wants to go until the end every season, to win every single title there is. And this means a lot to me.”
