Report: Nenad Krstic Ends Tenure With Celtics, NBA After Agreeing to Deal With Russian Team

Nenad Krstic's stay with the Celtics — and the NBA — will apparently be a short one. On Thursday,  the seven-foot center agreed to a two-year, £6 milion deal ($8.7 million) with CSKA Moscow, according to interbasket.net.

Krstic averaged 9.1 points and 5.3 rebounds in 24 games with the Celtics after being traded by Oklahoma City midseason as a part of the Kendrick Perkins-Jeff Green swap. Prior to his stint with the Thunder, the Serbian native spent four years with the New Jersey Nets.

Krstic began his pro basketball career with KK Partizan, a Serbian professional team, before signing with the Nets in 2004. The 27-year old reportedly turned down offers from European powers Barcelona and Olympiacos before agreeing to a deal with CSKA Moscow.
