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”
Like every summer the rumors about CSKA are raging. One of them is about Milos Teodosic and his departure from the team from Moscow. A lot has been heard and it has even been written that he’s a breath away from a deal with Fenerbahce. The truth is that so far nothing has happened and there is no indication at all that CSKA is going to cut off the Serbian guard and ask him to break their contract. Milos Teodosic has a contract with CSKA until the summer of 2017, there is no release clause from the side of the player, nor the side of the team, not even an NBA Out. So it seems, then, that despite the “easy” rumors, the 28 year old playmaker will continue with the club for a 5th season.
UPDATE: There are rumors now that he might leave Barcelona this summer and maybe go to the NBA orCSKA Moscow, the club in Europe with the most money. It’s really all rumors though and tough to say what is really true. Tomic is easily a NBA rotation player, if not a starter, but he is a uniquely skilled player and the fit needsto be right. Think whatever the opposite of Gobert and Favors are as players. My guess is if Utah didn’t own his rights and he was a free agent he’d already be in the league. If he really wants to come over, maybe he could also be a trade chip if Utah doesn’t see the fit.
