Shaq to Play in Turkey Next Year?

December 8, 2010

According to the Seref Yalcin, Shaquille O’Neal may be well on his way to Turkey next year. Personally, I think this is a hoax to spark up revenue, but the GM did get Allen Iverson to Turkey, therefore, you never know with him.

From Hoopnotes:

After bringing Allen Iverson, Besiktas now pushed for the transfer of the Boston Celtics’ star Shaquille O’Neal. Seref Yalcin, GM of the Turkish club, said he was in the United States to meet with the center who said to him: “I want to be champion this season with Boston. But I’m coming to Turkey next year.”

Yalcin also said Iverson served as an intermediary, talking with Shaq to convince him to sign with the Turkish club. Shaquille O’Neal has signed a two-year contract witht he Boston Celtics but the second year is a player option, which means that, if a lock-out is confirmed in the next months, this scenario isn’t completely unthinkable.

“Some people will still come out and said ‘Shaq won’t come to Turkey’,” Yalcin added. “But the chances are very high.”

Well, everyone thought that the arrival of Allen Iverson was impossible. And it happened. We don’t see O’Neal come to Europe before he’s 40 but we also never say never.
