Sasha Kaun Re-Signs With CSKA Moscow Through 2015

Sasha Kaun, the one-time Kansas center and 2008 second round draft pick of the Seattle Supersonics, has decided to re-sign with CSKA Moscow and continue his career in Europe. The Cavs eventually acquired his rights from the Sonics but he has yet come over to the States and play in the NBA. Cavaliers fans have kept up on his career in Russia but it appears that he is comfortable with his career in the Euroleague, agreeing to a deal that keeps him with the Moscow club through the 2014-15 season. Quotes from Kaun after the jump:

Via sportando.net:

I am glad that we agreed to continue our cooperation. It will be a pleasure to play three more years in CSKA uniform. I am sure we will win a lot. But especially I'd like to get another chance to win the Euroleague title, because I still don't have one. And, surely, we should continue our winning series in Russia. Hopefully, the fans will be glad to see me on the court again.
