The Turkish Sertac Sanli, interior option for Barça

The turkish pivot Sertac Sanli could become one of the first reinforcements of the Barça for the next season. From their country they assure that there is already an agreement closed for two years for their arrival at the Palau, although from the Barça club they recognize the interest but reject anything more concrete.

The Lithuanian Journalist Donatas Urbonas was the first to speak, this Thursday, of “advanced conversations” between the Barça Y Sanli. Today the prestigious Turkish journalist Ismail senol he has gone further and signed a two-year deal with an “astronomical contract” that would make him the highest paid Turkish player in Europe.

From the Barça recognize that Sanli It is one of the names that is being considered to reinforce the team’s interior game next season but they assure that there is no definitive agreement or anything signed. The Barça team needs a pivot to cover the march of Pau Gasol at the end of the season and also that of Artem Pustovyi, which ends the contract and will not be renewed. However, the important economic commitment that they speak from Turkey does not seem very credible given the important cuts that Barça’s basketball section must undertake this summer.

Sanli, 29, has been the great interior reference of the Anadolu efes these last seasons, with a progression that few could imagine a few years ago. He is a big pivot (2.12) but with a good hand from the line of three and very effective in the continuations towards the basket after the ‘pick and roll’ generated by Vasilje Micic Y Shane larkin.

The Anadolu efes was the executioner of Barça on the final of the last Euroleague. In that match, which the Turkish team won 81-86, Sanli he finished with 12 points, 2 rebounds and a block.
