Zabelin to join CSKA
CSKA signed the 5-years contract with the forward Artem Zabelin (19, 215). The player practiced with CSKA for two weeks last season and played with Avtofor Saratov.

- We are sure that Zabelin has the potential to become the true star, - says CSKA Senior Vice President Andrei Vatutin. – His physical abilities and court vision can impress anyone who knows just a bit about basketball. The first time we paid attention to his was Kondrashin and Belov Cup last autumn. He played for Dynamo St.Petersburg. Then he was on the try outs with CSKA and impressed our coaches with his abilities. Since when we talked a lot about Zabelin with Avtodor President Vladimir Rodionov who found Anton and before prepared for CSKA Victor Khryapa and Sergei Monya. We tried to find the best possible solution for the player. And finally we decided to sign 5 years deal. Artem has the new stage of his career, new goals. We believe in his talent!

- After Artem came back from the try outs in the US we thought about the best possible solution for his career, - says Vladimir Rodionov. – But CSKA Senior Vice President Andrei Vatutin made us feel that the best way would be signing with CSKA.
