WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Ron Baker is taking his talents overseas.

The former Wichita State Shockers guard signed a one-year deal to play with CSKA Moscow next season.

Baker went undrafted in the 2016 NBA Draft, before latching on with the New Yorks.

He would play just over two seasons with the team until he was waived on Dec. 13, 2018.

Just a week later, the Scott City, Kansas native would sign to play for the Washington Wizards. He played four games with the team, before being released on Jan. 7.

CSKA Moscow is coming off a 2018-19 season that saw them win their eighth EuroLeague championship.
