There’s a lot of talk from NBA players about going to play in Europe if there is an extended lockout, although most of it is fantasy not reality. Do you think a quality European club is going to sign an NBA player for half a season?
But free agents, that may be a different story.
Enter Nenad Krstic, the Serbian center who was likely to draw international interest anyway. He started last season with the Thunder and finished with the Celtics but will be a free agent July 1 when the lockout starts.
CSKA Moscow are reportedly interested in signing Boston Celtics’ Serbian center Nenad Krstic (27 years old, 213 cm). According to Serbian website Sportske.net, the Russian club has offered the player a long-term contract.
The club would not comment on the rumors, which is pretty much the standard policy of teams on both sides of the Atlantic.
For all the talk of a player going to Europe, this one makes some sense. We’ll see how it pans out (nothing can really happen until July 1) but this is one to watch.
