Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
Howard was on our radar for a long time. He can play on every position from 1 to 3, so we hope he fill in for injured Will. He is in good shape already so it is on him and us to fit him in to the team. We talked a couple of times already, and I like his motivation.

Howard Sant-Roos, CSKA forward:
It is a huge honor for me to be part of CSKA organization. Thank you so much for the opportunity. I am ready to give my 1000% to help the team.
