US basketball player proposed to get Azeri citizenship

Bakı. Elshen Mammedov - APA-Sport. Russian CSKA chief director Andrey Vatutin has proposed Lebron James, superstar of National Basketball Association, to get Azerbaijani citizenship.

He stated that this is the only way for Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player to join CSKA. ESPN television company website says that James is likely to play in Russia from 2010. It is also stated that the team is ready to pay the player USD 50m per year. Vatutin has refuted all the information.
“WE have made no proposal to James. We do not select players two years ahead. We already have Morris and Langdon as foreigners in the team. We are going to keep them in the camp as well. We cannot pick the third American player. Maybe, if he gets a passport of Azerbaijan…”, he was quoted as saying.
