CSKA Moscow guard Alexey Shved told Russian news agency RIA Novosti that he expects to visit the United States next week and meet with the Timberwolves, Memphis and Cleveland about an NBA contract. Shved, a 23-year-old 6-5 free-agent combo guard, is playing for the Russian national team this week in an Olympic qualifying tournament. Shved said he'd pick an NBA team based on where he'll get the most playing time.
