CSKA Moscow has made a major offer to Olympiacos center Nikola Milutinov and has entered negotiations with the Greek club to possibly acquire the player according to Eurohoops sources.

Olympiacos had signed Milutinov to a contract extension until 2020 that includes only an NBA buyout that expires in mid-July. Olympiacos doesn’t intend to sell the Serbian center to another EuroLeague side unless the “Reds” receive a satisfactory and substantial sum that will help them create a competitive roster for 2019-2020.

The talks between CSKA and Olympiacos are ongoing. The following days will determine whether Milutinov will continue with the Greek team or join the reigning EuroLeague champion.

Milutinov, 24, comes off the top season of his career so far. He averaged 11.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 26:01 minutes over 28 games in EuroLeague with Olympiacos and emerged as one of the elite centers in the competition.

The San Antonio Spurs own Milutinov’s NBA rights.
