CSKA will play NBA teams
Our team will go to USA again this October to take part in the Euroleague Basketball American Tour 2010. CSKA Moscow and Caja Laboral from Spain will both play two exhibition games against NBA teams.

"We are very glad to be invited again and to represent the Euroleague and Russian basketball, - PBC CSKA President Andrey Vatutin said. Two years ago, when our club went overseas for the first time, we were hoping that this single action will grow into serious partnership between two most powerful basketball leagues in the world. I am happy to see that Euroleague Basketball American Tour became traditional and popular. I'd like to note that it was NBA who suggested the opponents for us, and this option seemed very interesting for us. It is difficult to say what kind of rosters Oklahoma City and Cleveland will have in October, but I can promise that CSKA will fight for the win in both games. USA tour will become useful for us because the rules will be changed next season, they will become closer to American ones, and we will get the chance to prepare better, to try new tactical ideas, to learn from NBA teams' experience."
