It looks as if former Kansas University guard Keith Langford is about to strike it rich.

According to various Web sites, including solobasket.it, Russian League team Khimki Moscow is about to sign Langford to a two-year deal for a total of $2.6 million U.S. dollars. The team also will pay a buyout to Italian League team Virtus Bologna of $400,000. Web site Sportando.net says the deal is completed, with the announcement coming soon.

Langford averaged 13.3 points per game last season. Former KU player Sasha Kaun plays for Russian League team CSKA Moscow.
