Chacho: CSKA has him, but the Russian press sees him outside

Sergio Rodríguez has a signed third year, but with an exit clause. The Russian press says it will not continue, according to CSKA sources. But the club tells the base that it has him.

Sergio Rodríguez, 33 years old and 1.90m, does not even know if he will continue in the CSKA, with which he has just proclaimed himself champion of the Unified League (VTB) and the Euroleague, where he was key for the Russian team to give the return to a match almost lost in the semifinal against Real Madrid. The Russian newspaper Izvestia says, according to sources from the Moscow club, that Chacho will not remain on the team, because the intention is to bet on a rejuvenated project. De Colo and Higgins have left the template and the renewed Clyburn will now take more gallons. However, CSKA has informed the Tenerife base a few hours ago that it does count on him for next season. In other words, if the player wants to leave, he will have to compensate the club.

El Chacho arrived in Moscow in the summer of 2017, after leaving Madrid in July 2016 and spending a season in NBA, in Philadelphia, in the Sixers. He signed for three seasons although for the third, the one he would have to face from next September, was collected a releasable clause enforceable by either party (club or player) of 450,000 euros and will expire this week. Whoever exercises it will have to pay the agreed money.

The base has not entered, despite his desire to go back to wearing white, in the plans of Madrid, which already has Campazzo, Llull and Laprovittola in that position, and some sources now point to the interest of Armani Milan. But his future could also be in Spain, back to the Endesa League. Valencia and Unicaja have fought for their signing. In Malaga, for example, they were willing to increase their budget to hire him, but at this moment the Los Guindos club seems to have fewer options. The fact that the Euroleague does not play is also a factor against.
