After Mikhail Prokorov was named owner of the Nets, it seemed almost inevitable that his time at CSKA Moscow would infiltrate the Nets’ front office. That time has finally come.
Sergei Kushchenko, the former GM of CSKA, was named to the Nets’ board of directors. Kushchenko had plenty of success at the CSKA GM, as he won the Euroleague with the team in the years 2006 and 2008.
I don’t know much about the Euroleague or Sergei Kushchenko. However, the guy did win at that level. Let’s hope that his management skills translate to the NBA.
