Terence Morris (1997-2001) has signed a new deal (translation) to play for Efes Pilsen in Turkey next season. Efes is fresh off winning the Turkish league championship this season. Morris also drew interest (translation) from top European teams Real Madrid and Spanish champion Barcelona.
Two seasons ago, Morris led his team, Maccabi Tel Aviv, to the Euroleague championship game, but finished as runners-up to champion CSKA Moscow. This season, he came off the bench as his team, CSKA Moscow, made it to the Euroleage championship game again, only to finish as runners-up to Panathinaikos. Next year, Morris will play for Efes Pilsen, which used to have ex-Terp Drew Nicholas on their team from 2006 to 2008. Laron Profit also briefly played for Efes during the 2006-07 season. The last two times Efes made it to the Euroleague quarterfinals, they lost to Panathinaikos in 2005 and CSKA in 2006, so there are team connections all around.
