CSKA Moscow Rumors
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.”
David ‘Dubi’ Pick: Dimitris Itoudis, sources said, flirted with idea of bringing soon-to-be waived Tibor Pleiss to CSKA. – RT: David ‘Dubi’ Pick: No shocker if Tibor Pleiss lands with CSKA Moscow. He and coach are both under BDA Sports umbrella.
It’s not a secter that Teodosic has a contract for next year with CSKA Moscow, however as he explained to “Sportski Zurnal” newspaper there’s at least a desire to explode the NBA possibility in the future: “I was always thinking about what would be to go there, to get a different feel about basketball which is in many ways different from the way things are in Europe. But I have another year on my contract with CSKA and this season I will not think about the NBA. When the time comes, we’ll talk”.

The Memphis Grizzlies tried to sign star European point guard Milos Teodosic in the summer of 2013, but the architect of Serbia’s near-upset of Team USA at the Rio Games rebuffed that chance to come to the NBA, according to league sources. Sources confirmed to ESPN that the Grizzlies offered Teodosic a two-year deal in the $5 million range in an attempt to lure him to the NBA.
