Former Basketball Champions League MVP Jordan Theodore confirmed that he’s joining Turkish club Besiktas. He will make his BSL comeback following his 2016-2017 stint with Banvit.

“Hello, Besiktas. I am so happy to be here. See you,” Theodore said in a video story he posted on his Instagram profile.

Theodore spent the second half 2018-2019 with Greek Basketball Champions League club AEK Athens. The American guard led the team to the Intercontinental Cup title while being named MVP of the tournament.

In BCL, he averaged 9.4 points, 4.5 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 27.0 minutes.

Ιn 2016-2017, Theodore led Banvit to the inaugural Basketball Champions League Final Four and MVP of the competition and member of the Star Lineup squad. He capitalized on that season by signing a contract with Olimpia Milano to play in EuroLeague for the first time in his career.
