The Colombian forward/center is returning to the Turkish League, where he played from 2014 to 2017 and will also reunite with coach Ufuk Sarica with whom he won the championship title back in 2015 with Pinar Karsiyaka.

Besiktas is currently first in Group D of the Basketball Champions League with a 7 – 2 record and third in the Turkish BSL with 9-3.
