According to Russian basketball journalist Artem Komarov, Alexey Shved, a former NBA player, talked about his possible future in an interview with teammate Viktor Pavlenko. Sheved said that he is on the verge of leaving CSKA Moscow, and he has received some offers from teams in the European Basketball League and China, including the Greek giant Olympiakos, who performed well in the European Basketball League last season.
Born in December 1988, Sheved is 34 years old, with a height of 198cm and a weight of 85kg. He is a draft loser in the 2010 NBA Draft. However, with his outstanding performance in CSKA Moscow in the 2011-12 season, he got a contract from Minnesota Timberwolves in the summer of 2012. Sheved’s performance in the Timberwolves in the first season was actually not bad, but in the second season, with the decrease of playing time, his performance also declined to some extent. The Timberwolves also sent Sheved to the Philadelphia 76ers in the summer of 2014. Shortly after the start of the regular season, Sheved was sent to the Houston Rockets by the 76ers and then sent to the new york Knicks by the rockets.
In the summer of 2015, after the contract with the Knicks expired, Sheved did not get a contract from other NBA teams, and he had to return to Europe to play. However, in Europe, he has become a top scorer. He has won the scoring champion of the European League twice, the scoring champion of the European Basketball League once and the scoring champion of the VTB League twice. He is one of the best pitchers in Europe and has excellent scoring ability.
However, after all, Sheved is a veteran who will be 35 years old in a few months, and with his status and position in the European arena, he also needs to pay a lot of wages to sign him. Then the question comes, will there really be a CBA team to offer a big contract for this Russian veteran and sign him?
