Fenerbahce Ulker lands All-Euroleague big man Batiste
The new-look Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul will feature a familiar face in very unfamiliar colors after the Turkish powerhouse signed All-Euroleague big man Mike Batiste to a one-year contract. Batiste (2.04 meters, 34 years old) arrives in Istanbul after spending nine seasons anchoring the Panathinaikos frontcourt. During his time with the Greens, which was a record for a non-Greek player in that country, Batiste won three Euroleague titles and reached the Final Four on five occasions. Last season Batiste was named to the 2011-12 All-Euroleague Second Team after posting 9.7 points and 4.6 rebounds in just 21 minutes per game to help lead the team to the Final Four in his new home city, Istanbul. The year before, he helped Panathinaikos win the Euroleague and was selected to the 2010-11 All-Euroleague First Team.
