   2010 Summer Signings, Part 4

Not everyone is suffering, though. Khimki have taken advantage of the situation by signing ex-Blazers forward Sergei Monia from cash strapped rivals Dynamo Moscow, and have also signed ex-Nets guard Zoran Planinic from the other Moscow team, CSKA. CSKA can probably afford to spare Planinic; they have made 8 consecutive Euroleague Final Fours, and danced their way to a Russian Superleague title, going unbeaten throughout the postseason (beating Khimky in the final).

- Raul Lopez

Former Jazz guard Raul Lopez left Spain this summer to go to Russia, where it is considerably less sunny. He and fellow Spanish national team member Carlos Cabezas both moved to Russia to be the two point guard tandem for Khimky, trying to replace (and improve upon) last year's tandem of Milt Palacio and Anton Ponkrashov. They have done just that; Cabezas has averaged 7.1 points and 3.6 assists per game in the Russian league and 7.3/2.4 in the Euroleague; Lopez has averaged 4.2/2.5 and 6.3/3.1 respectively.
