BOSTON (CBS) – Celtics Free Agent center Nenad Krstic is heading to Moscow, according to reports.

According to Serbian news site Novosti.rs, Krstic will sign a two-year deal with CSKA Moscow. Krstic previously played for Triumph Lyubertsy in Russia in 2008.

Krstic averaged 9.1 points and 5.4 rebounds in 24 games with the Celtics after coming over from the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Kendrick Perkins-Jeff Green trade.
