A young Turkish Airlines Euroleague veteran is set to keep playing for his signature club, as CSKA Moscow announced that power forward Andrey Vorontsevich signed a new contract until the end of the 2016-17 season, the club announced Friday. Vorontsevich (2.04 meters, 26 years old) joined CSKA's first team before the start of the 2006-07 season and offers eight years and 112 games of Euroleague experience. He averaged 4.6 points and 3.1 rebounds in 25 Euroleague games last season. Vorontsevich has helped CSKA win the Euroleague title in 2008, as well as making it to six other Final Fours, reaching the title game in 2007, 2009 and 2012. Vorontsevich also won eight Russian League titles and lifted four VTB League trophies with CSKA. Even when team captain Viktor Khryapa joined the team earlier, Vorontsevich is the current CSKA player with more consecutive seasons with the team. He has also been a member of the Russian national team, to which Vorontsevich helped get a bronze medal at EuroBasket 2011.
