    Pinar Karsiyaka signed Amath M'Baye (PF, 2.06m, 1989) from Virtus Bologna and Jordan Morgan (PF, 2.03m, 1991) from Banvit, after the return of coach Ufuk Sarica, replacing Bauermann. I didn't watch M'Baye last year but he had a few good games with Milano in the EL.

    Tofas signed DJ White, and it seems like Berkan Durmaz is staying after all the rumors (of him moving to Fener). They had previously signed Berk Ugurlu from Karsiyaka. Yigit Arslan leaves the club to join Galatasaray. I wonder when they'll sack Orhun Ene.

    Gaziantep signed Jamelle Hagins from Afyon, after extending coach Markovic's contract.

    Bahcesehir extended Alper Ozcan's contract.

    Fenerbahce released Tyler Ennis, Erick Green, Ahmet Can Duran, Baris Hersek and Yordan Minchev. Marko Guduric and Nicolo Melli had left earlier for the NBA. Fenerbahce signed Nando De Colo and Leo Westermann and they also recently added Berkay Candan from Buyukcekmece.

    Efes released Onuralp Bitim, Brock Motum, and added Alec Peters and Tolga Gecim. Some people are expecting serious minutes, I don't see it likely with Ataman, but this is Tolga's chance if he's gonna amount to anything.

    Galatasaray released Erol Can Cinko and signed Yigit Arslan from Tofas. Arslan needs to really break out, maybe this is the opportunity.

    I expect serious minutes for Tolga. Fits Atamans style perfectly. He also always have a go to Turkish guy to give the team some spirit when things go south. Tolga can fill the role.

    I agree with Okanial. In the middle of the season he can be starting SF at Euroleague also.

    I really hope so, and I also hope it won't be because our current SFs suck badly.

    when I saw it on twitter, for a minute, I thought if this could be that bright kid from the Canadian u19 last year (Danilo Djuricic), but apparently this is a Montenegrin with a Turkish wife.

    Yeah McKissic btw. who also signed with BJK has also a turkish wife I think he is a good addition for CL but not for BSL

    To the point with Gecim... I dont think hell be Euroleague level next season. He is very tall and is really good in creating for others. His height allows him to see above others and he is a great passer but last season he really failed to finish the easiest layups especially after Moore and Neal got injured. Shooting is another issue. I think contributing next season in CL will depend one these two points.

    And in Addition to that he is an injury prone.

    And yes i agree... Gecim fits the system of Ataman very well

    Metecan Birsen wants to step out from his contract with Efes. For some reason Ufuk Sarica trusts him very much. I cant share his opinion. He has a big problem with concentration and focus in a game too sloppy and sleepy but he should be enough for an upper team like Karsiyaka.

    Karsiyaka also wants to sign Bitim and Erden. He wants all problematic but talented Turks. But the most exciting guy to watch beside of Bitim is will be Ali Efe Baris who will be lift from the youth. Very good shooter who can also handle the ball well.

    After arrival of Tolga and improvement of Yigitcan, Metecan became a bit idle. personally I want him to stay for the depth but wouldn't mind if he goes.

    Birsen obviously signed with Karsiyaka. Good choice for his career. He is not Euroleague level right now.

    Tony Crocker obviously near to Pinar Karsiyaka. An interesting team is about to be formed.

    TekSüt is new main sponsor of Bandirma. Levenspiel you have to edit the name again i guess.

    The team is called TekSüt Bandirma from now on. The agreement is for 5 years and i hope the budget is not very big. I dont want bandirma with 5 foreigners 3 at most...

    I'm pretty sure I remember reading on Raznatovic's twitter that Preldzic was staying with Bahcesehir. How did he perform for them last season?

    And what is the deal with Afyon Belediye and Istanbul BSB? Are those empty rosters a sign that those teams are in trouble?

    You're right, Raznatovic apparently did tweet him and Slaughter are staying with Bahcesehir, thanks.
    I also found out "The Sixers acquired Richardson, Toronto's 2022 2nd round pick and the rights to Emir Preldzic yesterday in exchange for cash considerations" on Feb 7.

    Afyon, yes, exactly. it's still not sure if they will continue in the BSL, but the chances seem more than 50%.
    Istanbul BSB is going to be there in the league, at least they're sharing the league schedule and inviting fans to the games, but they haven't done anything with the roster yet.

    Something must have changed, didn't Slaughter sign with AEK a couple of days ago?

    It's funny seeing these draft rights to players drafted over a decade ago still being traded around the NBA.

    Thanks for the info about Afyon and Istanbul BB. I remember a few teams withdrawing from the league last summer so was curious when I saw those empty rosters.

    BSL teams are either signing or running after players like Birkan Batuk, Samet Geyik, Arna, Ermis, Akyel, Yildizli, Demir, Kosut, Turkyilmaz, etc. These are mostly underperforming, disappointing, or to say it bluntly useless players. They haven't and they won't get better, but they do have a market. That's a massive issue, the mediocrity is not penalized, and that's why our bball league is doomed, imho.

    I had thought that we'd send Arna on loan as he didn't really progress other than some random outbursts, and try our luck with Tırpancı and Biberovic. But apparently with Güler out we will keep him as we need 6 Turkish players... right? Not sure about the rule. We currently have Dixon/Biberovic (only one counts as Turkish afaik), Melih, Tırpancı, Arna, Candan, Düverioğlu.

    Most teams are in situations like this. When you take into account number of Turkish players that have a guaranteed spot in the first league, you are bound to get some mediocre players. Still I would like more teams gambling for youth. At least there is a chance they won't suck.
