No European Cup, no problem. Next season, Livio Jean-Charles (28 years old, 2.06m, 4 caps) should mainly compete in the VTB United League, a Russian Championship supplemented by several foreign teams. The Guyanese interior has signed for CSKA Moscow for one season with an option for a second, the club with eight Euroleague titles announced on Monday.
CSKA Moscow is currently excluded from the European queen event, like the other Russian clubs, due to the war in Ukraine. Finding Jean-Charles in this context may therefore come as a surprise, especially since he was announced close to a return to Asvel, where he made several stints between 2011 and 2020. Interior with a defensive profile, he has just spent two seasons at Olympiakos Piraeus (3.8 points, 2.2 rebounds in 2021-2022), with whom he played in the Final 4 in May.
