    JP Macura to Turkey

    Looks like a good opportunity and hope everyone can find their way. This pandemic has ruined sports for so many great players/marginal pros I can't imagine how confusing it is.

    Best of luck to JP, as always. Great player and a guy it would be hard not to love......as long as heís on YOUR team!

    Strange times to be trying to land a gig like that for sure.

    Turkey has one of the best basketball leagues out there, so its not a bad gig imo.

    But Erdogan.

    Is he as bad as made out to be or is this more press BS?

    And JP is close friends with Kerem Kanter and so maybe he'll have a few contacts there that will make him feel more at home.

    Isn’t Karem prohibited from returning to Turkey? And hasn’t seen his family in years?
