Turkish Basketball Federation president Hedo Turkoglu said that a meeting between him and Shane Larkin’s agent will determine whether the star guard will join the Turkish national team as a naturalized player.

“Me and my staff made attempts, together with Larkin’s agent. His agent is going to come to Turkey today. If the meeting goes well, we will see Shane Larkin with the jersey of the Turkish national team,” Turkoglu said to TRT network.

Larkin has been averaging 20.2 points, 3.8 assists and 3.2 rebounds in EuroLeague in his second season with Anadolu Efes. A few weeks ago, he broke the record for the most points scored in a EuroLeague game by dropping 49 points in a win over Bayern Munich.
