After signing Nikola Milutinov and keeping Mike James, CSKA is ready for another big move signing Baskonia’s player Tornike Shengelia. According to reports from SDNA, coach Itoudis and CSKA have come to an agreement with the player.
Before Shengelia becomes a CSKA player, the Russian club has to pay a buy-out to Baskonia of approximately 1,5M euros. According to SDNA, the player’s buy-out will be covered by the Russian club and the player will sign a three-year contract with CSKA.
Although it seems that we have a done deal, Nikos Varlas of Eurohoops reports that the deal of Shengelia’s buy-out is not done yet and that both sides have been negotiating for weeks now coming close to a final deal.
