That puts an end to all the BS "signs with xx in the NBL" rumours... It was fun while it lasted!

Good for him though

He's married a Lithuanian, does that mean he's playing as a local?

Turkey is in Asia and is not part of the EU.

Turks aren't European but play in the Euroleague so would he be a local in the Euroleague?

I thought this was announced several days ago?
Or maybe just became official.

But yes, so ends the annual Hoops "Motum is going to sign with..." festival.

Once we finally take back Constantinople from the infidels we'll get the Turks back across the bosphorus where they belong!

TBL in Turkey lets teams have up to ten non-Turkish players on their squads anyway.

That reminds me, saw him and Brendan Teys walking around Caville Ave on the Goldy last week. Didn't think he would be that lanky in person but good luck to him.

Perth are screwed haha. Worst roster. Lose Kay, White and Martin and replace them with Blanchfield and Kevin White. They're in big trouble.

Those two faces together would have had me gagging with vomit. An uglier pair of mugs basketball has not seen.

Motum & Teys are best mates that's how the 36ers were able to get Motum 5-6 years ago.

Brock Motum speaks about his European adventures, and is raw and unfiltered, especially when it comes to 2019 FIBA World Cup Boomers selection.

Why would Motum bail out now and drop to the NBL when he's making probably half-a-million Euro a year OR more?

I think you'll see Motum back in the NBL sometime around the age of 35-38 when the best offer he can get is 250K from Sydney, United or Brisbane.

"Local as in European. Didn't think that needed clarifying."

This has been explained here in this forum before. You don't count as local in European basketball unless you play in the same country you have citizenship in. If you had Lithuanian citizenship and you played in Turkey, you count as a foreign player.

"Turkey is in Asia" and is not part of the EU.

It's in Europe and Asia. Also, geo-politically and sports-wise, it's definitely considered part of Europe.

"Turks aren't European but play in the Euroleague so would he be a local in the Euroleague?"

They are considered European in Europe, because an enormous part of the population lives in Europe. And it's a very European culture in the city that team plays in.

As far as EuroLeague goes, that league, and also it's second league (EuroCup) have no restrictions on foreign players. A team could have up to 17 foreign players if it wanted. And that doesn't mean "European passports". It means 17 players from anywhere in the world.

The only restrictions on foreign players comes from the national domestic leagues, or the FIBA continental competitions (BCL and Europe Cup). The FIBA leagues allow up to 7 foreign players.
