The center played 260 games in red and blue uniform (101 starts) averaging 7.7 points, 4.1 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 0.7 blocked shotes.
Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
It is natural for us to continue working together. Kyle is a part of CSKA, he is almost a franchise player, player that is always playing above his 100 percent. Even though he lacks size he has heart, wish and motivation to equalize his centimeters, he is one of the best on his position. We know each other, it is enough to just look each other in the eyes to understand what I want from him. I am very glad that we continue our collaboration. His experience, knowledge and dedication will help the club; younger players can use his example to develop.
Kyle Hines, CSKA center:
I’m really happy to remain with the club for another two seasons. Moscow over the past four years has become like a second home for me and my family. I’m looking forward to continuing the historical success the club has had in the past and working with my teammates, coaches and management in bringing more championships to the CSKA fans.
