Mike James is not expected to return to CSKA Moscow while Dimitris Itoudis remains the head coach of the club.

This is what the president of CSKA said, when asked about the possibility of James returning to the Muscovites.

“It’s clear that while Dimitris [Itoudis] is with the club, Mike [James] cannot be with us,” Vatutin said in an interview for the Russian Match, via Eurohoops.net.

CSKA parted ways with CSKA in late March and then joined the Brooklyn Nets, with the team keeping him for the remainder of the season.
