Nenad Krstic Signs With CSKA Moscow

After spending seven seasons in the NBA with the Nets, Thunder, and Celtics, Nenad Krstic signed with CSKA Moscow last summer, with the lockout looming. A year later, Krstic has decided to re-up in Russia, as CSKA Moscow announced today (via Twitter) that it has signed the Serbian for two more years, with a team option for a third.

Krstic, 28, was part of the Jeff Green/Kendrick Perkins trade in 2010/11, finishing the season with the Celtics. While the Celtics hold his Bird Rights (and a cap hold worth over $8.3MM), the team isn't permitted to include him a sign-and-trade deal, since he's spent a year away from the NBA. However, if he does eventually want to return to the Association, Boston could sign him without being under the cap or using a mid-level exception.

In 419 career games in the NBA, Krstic has averaged 10.0 points and 5.4 rebounds in 25.2 minutes per contest.
