Sergio Rodriguez signs three-year deal with Euroleague team

By Brandon Apter, Sports Talk Philly editor

Now that the Philadelphia 76ers are pretty set at the guard position, a former Sixer guard has found a new home. After returning to the NBA for a season in 2016-17, Sergio Rodriguez is headed back to the Euroleague as he inked a three-year deal with CSKA Moskova.

Rodriguez, 31, began last season as the Sixers' starting point guard after a wrist injury kept Jerryd Bayless sidelined. After the turn of the calendar year though, TJ McConnell's strong play earned him the starting job for the remainder of the season.

In 68 games for Philadelphia in 2016-17, Rodriguez averaged 7.8 points and 5.1 assists per game. He shot 39.2 percent overall and 36.5 percent from beyond the arc. The Sixers signed him to a one-year, $8 million deal last July.
