Guard Alexey Shved (21 years, 198 cm) who spent most part of the previous season in Dynamo Moscow on loan will start the new season in CSKA uniform. The players contract is valid until the summer of 2013.
Shved took the floor in just 4 games for CSKA main team in the beginning of 2009-10 season and was sent on loan to Dynamo in December. For the blue-and-white team he played in 10 Superlaue games (10.2 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 2.6 apg, 20.5 mpg), 13 Russian playoff games (10.8 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 5.1 apg, 1.0 spg, 25.0 mpg) и 2 Eurocup games (15.5 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 1.0 apg, 1.0 spg, 23.3 mpg).
Dusko Vujosevic, CSKA head coach:
“I am happy to coach the player who is so gifted. Everybody knows what kind of talent Alexey possesses; from the other side he should transform the talent into quality through team practices, hard work and self-sacrifice. He will have the chance to become the key player but it depends on him if he will use the chance.”
“It is a pleasure to be back on the court with the guys I respect and know well. My biggest desire for now is to play, to show myself, so I will try hard to prove that I am able to help the team.”
