Turk Telekom continues to turn heads in the summer market and a few minutes after the announcement of Tyler Ennis, Sam Dekker officially joined the team.

After his first season in Europe with Lokomotiv Kuban in Russia, the former NBA forward gained interest from EuroLeague teams, however, he joined the ambitious Turkish club which has created a solid roster and can already be considered a contender in the Basketball Champions League.

The 25 years old Dekker was the 18th pick of the 2015 NBA draft after a stellar NCAA run with Wisconsin. Dekker has already 200 NBA games under his belt with the Houston Rockets, the L.A.Clippers, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Washington Wizards.

Last season in 10 EuroCup games with Lokomotiv, he averaged 13.1 points per game.
