Andrey Vatutin, CSKA President:
Of course we expected this moment to come, but it is still tough to say goodbye to Trajan. He became a part of the team, of the family in his 6 years with CSKA, he helped us to win a number of titles both in Russia and in Europe. All the team members, club’s staff, fans saw in Trajan not only the greatest shooter ever, reliable and proven fighter but intelligent, responsive person, the role model on and off the court. I am happy that Trajan has deep Russian roots now which give us a chance to see him on our arena in future.
