CSKA is lending players to Spartak
According to russian newspaper Sports Daily, CSKA Moscow wants to give away potentially 4 players on-loan to Spartak in order for them to get some minutes of playing time as they will not get any playing time in CSKA given that they still want to sign Garbajosa and Lorbek.
The likeliest candidate is Anatoliy Kashirov and also Artem Zabelin, Andrey Vorontsevic and the latest addition to CSKA, Alexander Kaun who came from a very good year in the NCAA.
Kashirov averaged 4.4 points 3.4 rebouns in13 games, Zabelin averaged 3.2 points and 1.5 rebounds in 15 games, Vorontsevic averaged 4.1 points 3 rebounds in 13 games and Sasha Kaun who seems to be the most battle-ready of the 4 averaged 7.1 points and 3.9 rebounds in 40 games with Kansas State.
A wise move by CSKA as these players will get no experience this year sitting out all the games on the bench.
