Christmas in Moscow: Dionte signs with CSKA

After being cut by the Celtics earlier in the month, summer league standout and fan favorite Dionte Christmas has agreed to play in Russia this winter.


Dionte tweeted that last night and it looks like he came to a decision this morning. After shining in Orlando and Vegas and being taken under the wings of Jason Terry, a lot of us bloggers were rooting for the basketball journeyman to find a home with the Celtics, but it just didn't happen. He underperformed in training camp and just couldn't find a role in the crowded Boston back court. It looks like @DChristmas22 will again be playing overseas in Moscow. I hope the kid gets another chance to chase his NBA dreams next summer. Who knows? It's not unheard of for Danny to bring guys back to training camp the following year.
