Great Britain star Gabe Olaseni has signed for Turkish League side Bursaspor.

The 27-year-old centre moved from German side Wurzburg where he spent last season.

Olaseni is set to feature for GB in Saturday’s EuroBasket pre-qualifier against Kosovo in Manchester.

But he has set strict criteria for his next move.

“Just a good opportunity to play,” he told a recent episode of the MVP Cast. “Winning is very important. Being on a good team with a good group of guys. That’s the most important thing. I feel I can live anywhere. So the country is not as important as the situation.”

Great Britain guard Tarik Phillip is also Turkey-bound, signing for Tofas Bursa after he was waived by the Washington Wizards.
