Sergio Rodriguez is officially back in the EuroLeague.

The Spanish international has joined CSKA Moscow on a two-year deal with the option for a third, ending the speculation and becoming a near perfect replacement for Milos Teodosic, who left the Muscovites for the NBA.

Rodriguez arrives to the Russian capital from the Philadelphia 76ers, where he averaged 7.8 points and 5.1 assists in 68 games last season. He started in 30 of those contests.

With the Sixers, he hit career highs in points (7.8), assists (5.1), three-point shooting (36.5 percent) and minutes (22.3) after a six-year NBA hiatus.

Rodriguez found his true calling with Real Madrid before the start of the 2010-11 season. In his six seasons with Madrid, Rodriguez led his team to four Final Four appearances in 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015, playing three consecutive finals and lifting the trophy in 2015 – the club’s first EuroLeague crown in 20 years.
