Celtics center Nenad Krstic has agreed to a two-year deal with the Russian team CSKA Moscow, Celtics general manager Danny Ainge confirmed today. The Russian International News Agency reported earlier today that Krstic has agreed to a deal worth $8.8 million over the two years.

Krstic, who averaged 9.1 points and 5.3 rebounds during his time in Boston, made $5.5 million playing for the Celtics and for Oklahoma City last season. His deal with CSKA Moscow cannot be official until his NBA deal expires later this month. A potential NBA lockout could complicate free agency and makes this move a smart one for Krstic should the NBA miss games in the upcoming season.
