Malik Hairston spent his first season with Olimpia Milano who acquired him from Siena last summer. The American forward signed a one-year deal in 2011 and is now negotiating a new contract with EA7.
The two parts were close to re-signing when CSKA Mosow made an offer to the player who is now weighing his options. CSKA Moscow recently signed Zoran Erceg and Aaron Jackson and is finalizing the deal with Vlado Micov.
But the bugdet is over 40 million of euro and CSKA wants to win Euroleague next season. With the departure of Shved, Vorontsevich, maybe Kirilenko and Krstic, Messina is looking for the perfect players who can fit in his system.
Malik Hairston averaged 13.9ppg in Euroleague and 12.7ppg in Serie A.
Romain Sato is another candidate for CSKA Moscow but Fenerbahce is the front runner to acquire him.
