Perennial Turkish Airlines Euroleague title contender CSKA Moscow announced on Monday the addition of forward Pavel Korobkov for the next three seasons. Korobkov (2.06 meters, 23 years old) arrives from Nizhny Novgorod of Russia where last season he averaged 7.4 points and 2.1 rebounds as a part-time starter in 12 Eurocup games in his debut in that competition. Korobkov came up with Ural Great Perm and then moved to Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar in 2009-10. He played there then until 2012, when he signed for Nizhny Novgorod. He now moves to the Russian powerhouse CSKA Moscow and will make his debut in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague.
