Mikhail Prokhorov will probably be bringing in his own Front Office people. We know that. With that being said, I thought it would be interesting/fun to look at his Russian team’s (CSKA Moscow) roster.
Before we get to the actual roster, we should note that his teams were good. I mean real good. Just look at the results. They have won their Russian League titles every year since 2002-2003, plus they have been in the Euroleague final the final four years…winning it two out of those four years.
So, back to the roster. Here was their roster for the 2008-2009 Euroleague:
There are a lot of familiar names on the roster huh? There are a number of former-NBA players and a few big name college guys. So what does this mean? Well for one he is (or his people) are going to be willing to throw around a lot of cash for some big names (let’s face it, Prokhorov probably paid a ton of money – for Russian League basketball – for these guys).
Also note the coach…word is that Prokhorov is enamored with him.
