Sonny Weems - ZalgirisOne of the competition's most productive wing players last season switched Turkish Airlines Euroleague clubs on Monday when CSKA Moscow announced the arrival of small forward Sonny Weems, who inked a three-year deal with his new team. Weems (1.98 meters, 26 years old) arrives from Zalgiris Kaunas, where he averaged 15.5 points and 5 rebounds in 15 Euroleague games last season, his first in the competition. He was the third-best scorer in the 2011-12 Euroleague, trailing only Alphonso Ford Top Scoring Trophy winner Bo McCalebb and Final Four MVP Vassilis Spanoulis. Weems came to Kaunas from Toronto of the NBA, where he averaged 9.2 points and 2.6 rebounds in 59 games in 2010-11. It was Weems’s third season in the NBA, where he had also played for Denver. Before that he enjoyed a successful college basketball career during which he won several awards playing for the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith and the University of Arkansas. "I am excited to become part of one of the best European teams," Weems said. "I am happy to get this kind of chance at this stage of my career. It will be interesting to work for Coach Messina. I am ready for any role he will give me."
