Our club signed short-term agreements with guard Dallas Moore (27 years old, 183 cm) and center Andrey Desyatnikov (28 years old, 220 cm)...

Short-term contracts: Desyatnikov and Moore

The contract with Moore is valid for month and a half with the possibility of extension until the end of the season. It is assumed that Dallas will join our team on September 4 at a training camp in Belek, Turkey.

Moore is an alumnus of North Florida university, in his four years in the NCAA he was elected to the All-Conference Team three times. In 2017, he played in the NBA Summer League for the Denver Nuggets, after which he began his professional career in Victoria Pesaro and became the second in scoring in the Italian League (18.7 points). Further in the player's career were Hapoel Tel Aviv, Turin, Nanterre and Guangzhou Lions.

The guard spent last season in Partizan, mostly as a reserve, although he started in the final series. His averages were 6.2 points (50% two-pointers, 46.5% three-pointers, 85.7% free throws), 1.1 rebounds, 1.1 assists in 13.9 minutes in 18 EuroCup games, 8.7 points (62.6% two-pointers, 38.9% three-pointers, 85.0% free throws), 1.1 rebounds, 1.4 assists in 15.3 minutes in 31 Adriatic League games.

In 2018, Moore received the citizenship of Albania and since then has been playing for the National Team of this country, having played 9 games in the pre-qualifiers for the 2021, 2025 European Championships and 2023 World Cup (15.9 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists).

Desyatnikov is well known to Russian fans for his performances for the Russian National Team, Zenit and Khimki. The center spent last season in the Superleague, where he played first for Dynamo from his native Vladivostok, and then for Samara. Andrey has been practicing with CSKA since the first days of the pre-season training camp. The contract with Desyatnikov is valid until December 1 with the possibility of extension until the end of the season.


Emil Rajkovic, CSKA head coach:

Due to injuries, the absence of Serbian national team players and the difficult situation on the transfer market, we found ourselves shorthanded in the 1 and 5 positions. We consider the invitation of Dallas and Andrey, players with experience of playing at a high level, as a temporary measure and we continue to monitor the market. At the same time, we hope that both players will spend their period in the CSKA uniform with due motivation, that they will be able to reveal their potential, to become an important part of our team and to prove their right to stay here for a longer time.

Dallas Moore, CSKA guard:

Super excited to be a part of this prestigious club and can’t wait to get there, get to work and meet my new coaches and teammates!

Andrey Desyatnikov, CSKA center:

I am very happy to play for the club with so many titles! Thank you to the coaching staff and the management of CSKA for the trust! I will do my best to be useful to the team. I have practiced and worked hard to be here. Thanks to everyone who helped me along the way!
