Sun’s Gordan Giricek signs with Turkey

by james on August 20th, 2008

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

Gordan Giricek of the Phoenix Suns signed with Turkey’s top team, Fenerbahce.

“We looked around the NBA,” his agent Marc Fleisher said. “Everybody was moving very slowly. And there were great opportunities for him to play overseas for a lot of money. Fenerbahce are Turkish champions and a EuroLeague team. It was a tough decision, and it came down to Fenerbache and Triumph, in Russia.”

“Gordan had an offer from the San Antonio Spurs,” Fleisher added, “but it was for much less.”


This seems to be a common theme where a team outside of the United States can pay more than the NBA can pay. So far it is just been bench players, but what if it was Kobe or LeBron?

As always, any NBA Basketball related comments are welcome.
