CSKA Moscow Rumors

Did you turn down any guaranteed NBA offers to sign that contract extension with CSKA Moscow? Mike James: Talks didn’t really get far enough for me to turn down offers. I definitely had a lot of interest from multiple teams. But, you know how cap space works. It saves fish for last. There was interest, I didn’t really turn down a concrete offer, but if I would’ve waited, I probably would’ve gotten multiple offers.
CSKA Moscow and Ron Baker parted ways, the Russian Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and VTB United League club announced. Per CSKA: “The Army Team stage of Ron Baker’s career is over. Ron wore the red and blue colors with pride, we appreciate his contribution to our team’s victories and we wish him best of luck on the next step of his career. Baker joined CSKA last summer after three seasons in the NBA. The American played for our team in EuroLeague games only. He averaged 2.6 points, 0.9 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.6 steals in 11.1 minutes in 27 games.”
