Guard Darrun Hilliards next contract is valid until the summer of 2021.

The American player just finished his second season in European basketball but he already displays great potential. Hilliard joined the Army Men a year ago and he already proved to be solid 3-point specialist. Darrun made 41.2% of long-distance shots, his 85 shots made are second on the team to Mike James (114). He also finished 7th in EuroLeague in three-pointers made (56). The guard was CSKA second-leading scorer (after James) averaging 11.1 points, including 10.6 in EuroLeague games.
