Jonas Kazlauskas, CSKA head coach:
Team game is usually defined by 1 and 5 spot players. I am glad that we found appropriate point guard to the center we signed earlier. Krstic and Teodosic played a lot together in Serbian National Team, they know each other well. I think they will make up a strong unit. There is no need to introduce Teodosic: he is an experienced player already, he played in many games of top-level, including terrific Olympiakos Panathinaikos battles. Therefore I am sure that he will help us.

Milos Teodosic:
I am happy to play for one of the best European teams. I am glad that CSKA will have strong roster, I am sure that we will be able to reach all the goals stated by the club. Surely it is great to play alongside my friend Nenad Krstic, the great player and person.
