Karaman Joins Bogdanovic on Fener; No NBA Buyout For Two Years

Ilkan Karaman will join Istanbul's Fenerbahce Ulker this season, the Turkish team announced Friday. The signing means that the Nets' two "Euro-Stash", Karaman and 2011 pick Bojan Bogdanovic, will both play for the Turkish and Euroleague powerhouse.

Karaman, a 6'9.5", 255-pound power forward, signed a three-year deal with Fenerbahce. Under contract terms, Karaman will not be eligible for an NBA buyout until the summer of 2014. Bogdanovic is eligible next summer.

Fener was able to sign Karaman because of a clause in his contract that made big man a free agent this summer. The 22-year-old Turk had been the property of one Turkish team but lent to another, a common practice in Europe. He averaged 10.7 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.1 assist. He also shot 30.3% from deep. Fener plays the Celtics in a nationally televised pre-season game October 5 in Istanbul.
