Eurohoops: CSKA Moscow likely to let Mike James stay in NBA

Eurohoops, the official fan blog of the Euroleague, reports that CSKA Moscow, who essentially “loaned” Mike James to the Nets in April, appears ready to let him go and stay in the NBA. James is under contract with CSKA through 2023.

Aris Barkas of Eurohoops reported over the weekend...

The Nets‘ deal was a gift from the heavens for all sides involved. James is getting the chance to showcase his talent as a member of elite NBA contenders that need guards. And CSKA on the other hand is willing to let James continue his career in the NBA – and not end up signing with a European rival – while negotiating with him in the upcoming summer his release and saving some, if not all, the money from the rest of his deal, which includes $5 million in salaries until the summer of 2023.
