CSKA Moscow found a go-to scorer in Nando De Colo, who signed a two-year deal with the VTB United League champions.
De Colo (1.95 meters, 27 years old) returns for the Turkish Airlines Euroleague for the first time since the 2010-11 season, during which he averaged 10.1 points as a Power Electronics Valencia reserve and led the club to the playoffs.
He spent the past two seasons in the NBA, first with San Antonio and then Toronto. De Colo averaged 3.8 points and 1.7 assists in 119 games between the two teams. A product of the Cholet Basket youth system, De Colo led his boyhood club to the Semaine D’As crown in 2008 and was the MVP of the French League All-Star Game that season.
He joined Valencia in 2009 and helped the club to win the 2010 Eurocup as a member of the All-Eurocup First Team. De Colo has also been a regular with the French national team; he helped it win gold at EuroBasket 2013 and silver at EuroBasket 2011.
