Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul strengthened its backcourt by signing one of the premier guards in Europe, Nando De Colo, on a multiyear deal. De Colo (1.96 meters, 32 years old) has been among the most dominant players in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague over the past five seasons, which he played with CSKA Moscow. De Colo led CSKA to EuroLeague titles in 2016 and 2019, reached the Final Four five times and earned All-EuroLeague team honors in each those five seasons – first team in 2016, 2017 and 2018 and second in 2015 and 2019.
Fenerbahce managed to convince Nando De Colo to turn around and leave aside his NBA aspirations. The French guard and the Turkish EuroLeague powerhouse have an agreement in principle, according to Eurohoops sources. De Colo left CSKA Moscow and remains a restricted free agent of the Toronto Raptors in the NBA, however, this does not affect his deal with the Turkish club.

In case the right NBA offer doesn’t come along, De Colo could return to Europe and among a large number of interested clubs, he is expected to get calls from Spain as well, primarily Real Madrid. However, Valencia Basket holds his rights in Spain and the club director Paco Raga noted they don’t rule out anything and might try to equal the offer: “We have the rights of De Colo in the ACB and if we can assume Real Madrid offer, we don’t rule out to equal it. Why not. We don’t rule out any scenario and of course, we are not going to renounce the rights that remain belonging to us since he moved to the NBA in 2012. We will always defend the interests of the club. He is a top player, one of the best in Europe”, Raga told Las Provincias.
