Well-known commentator Vladimir Gomel appreciated the potential of young basketball players of CSKA Alexander Khomenko and Andrey Lopatin.
— You can think anything. I hope that the army’s young people will play longer periods in matches of VTB United League. It is possible that Khomenko and he can be useful in games of Euroleague. The potential both have, wrote Gomel on its official website.
CSKA this summer lost just six players. Left Andrey Vorontsevich, Howard Sant ROC, Mikhail Kulagin, Costa Porto Koufo, Kyle Hines and Ron Baker.
