BallinEurope, the European hoops site, is reporting that most Russian league teams have stopped paying their players as Russia's financial crisis worsens. Among them: Triumph Moscow, who signed Nenad Krstic to a two-year deal last summer. At the time, the contract was seen as the equivalent of a $9 million NBA contract. No more. The Nets retained their rights to Krstic by offering him a $2.7 million NBA contract.
