    MOSCOW, February 16 (RIA Novosti) - Following the National Basketball Association (NBA) All-Star Game, held last weekend in Los Angeles, Director General of the leading Russian basketball club CSKA Sergey Kushchenko and NBA Vice President Andrew Messick reached a preliminary agreement concerning the NBA Utah Jazz arrival in Moscow this year's fall in order to meet in a friendly game against CSKA.

    According to the CSKA press service, the main negotiations are ahead, but the NBA's principal consent on the Utah Jazz arrival in Moscow has already been given.

    A number of mass media agencies have reported earlier on the possibility of holding friendly games between Utah and CSKA, but the talks on the issue were not held at an official level.

    It's worth noting that Russian legionary Sergei Kirilenko plays for Utah Jazz and before his departure to the US in 2001 he used to play for CSKA.
