CSKA Moscow bolstered its frontcourt with the addition of center Kenneth Faried, who signed a two-month contract with an option to extend until the end of the season, the club announced on Saturday. Faried (2.03 meters, 31 years old) arrives from Leones de Ponce of Puerto Rico, where he averaged 12.0 points and 9.3 rebounds in three games this season. Faried previously spent eight years in the NBA, seven of which he played with Denver and one where he split time between Brooklyn and Houston. In a total of 478 games, Faried averaged 11.4 points and 8.1 rebounds. In his career, he also briefly played in China with Zhejiang Guangsha Lions, and was a member of the US national team that won gold medal at 2014 World Cup. He now arrives on the European continent for the first time and is set to make his Turkish Airlines EuroLeague debut. Faried will give a boost to the CSKA frontcourt, depleted after the knee injury of Nikola Milutinov.
