ANKARA 

Turkish basketball powerhouse Anadolu Efes on Sunday prolonged the contract of their German center, Tibor Pleiss, for at least two years.

The club said in a statement that Pleiss, who joined Anadolu Efes in 2018, would serve the team until the end of the 2022-23 season.

It added that Pleiss, 30, inked a two-year deal with an option for a third season.

Last season, he averaged 9.5 points and 4.3 rebounds per game in 28 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague appearances.

Pleiss will play his 10th EuroLeague campaign next season of his career, first taking part in the 2010-11 season with Germany’s Brose Bamberg.

He also plays for the German national team.
