Lonny Baxter (1998-2002) has signed a new deal (translation) with Besiktas of Turkey's top league, the TBL. Several years ago, Rodney Elliott used to play for Besiktas, and Laura Harper and Shay Doron both played for Besiktas's womens team last year.
Staying in the Turkish Basketball League for another year, Ekene Ibekwe (2003-07) has signed with Kepez Bld Anatalya (translation). Ekene played in the TBL last season with Mutlu Aku Selcuk Universitesi Konya, but that team finished near the bottom of the league and was relegated to the TBL2 minor league. By signing with Kepez, Ibekwe will get to continue playing in the top pro league.
