Fenerbahce Ulker Rumors
The NBA today released its 2015 preseason schedule that tips off on Friday, Oct. 2 and features three top international teams — Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul, Maccabi Haifa, and Paschoalotto/Bauru — traveling to the U.S. for six games against six NBA teams. Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul, a six-time Turkish League champion, will be the first international team to play in the U.S. this preseason, taking on the Brooklyn Nets on Oct. 5 at Barclays Center before meeting the Oklahoma City Thunder on Oct. 9 at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The Brooklyn Nets will host Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul of the Turkish Basketball League for a preseason game on October 5, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at Barclays Center, General Manager Billy King announced today. “We are excited to be hosting Fenerbahce, as it will be a reunion for Bojan Bogdanovic with his former team,” said King. “Our fans will have an opportunity to see one of the best coached teams in all of Europe when they come to Brooklyn.”
Fenerbahce is looking for a big-man and one of their targets is Ekpe Udoh, who played for the Los Angeles Clippers last season, as reported by Ismail Senol. Udoh will likely give an answer to Fenerbahce next week after a couple of meetings with NBA teams. Udoh has played 270 NBA games averaging 4 points and 3.2 rebounds in 16.54 minutes of action per contest.
