CSKA Moscow are reportedly interested in signing Boston Celtics’ Serbian centre Nenad Krstic (27 years old, 213 cm). According to Serbian website Sportske.net, the Russian club has offered the player a long-term contract.
Meanwhile, commenting on this information CSKA president Andrey Vatutin has refrained from giving a direct confirmation or denial.
«As the off-season is coming with active negotiations and signings of new players, there will be a lot of rumors on alleged future contracts around each club. Some of this information will prove to be true, some will be a complete lie and just an element of the agents’ game aimed to increase the price of a particular player. CSKA not will neither deny, nor confirm any rumors before the actual conclusion of official contracts,» Vatutin stated according to Championat.ru.
Krstic made $5.5 million last season and is an unrestricted free-agent. While it's impossible to predict his value without a CBA, I believe he can get a multiple-year contract from an NBA team.
Would you give Nads a 3-year, $15 million contract?
