Dionte Christmas will continue his career with CSKA Moscow, according to Eurohoops on Twitter. Christmas will replace Drew Nicholas who did not play up to the expectations of the coaching staff in the first months of the season. Christmas averaged 18.6ppg, 4rpg and 3apg with AGOR last season. He had turned down offers from European teams before he accepted the partially guaranteed contract with the Celtics. His dream is still to make it in the NBA but that dream is once again on hold for a little longer.
