Former Zalgiris fan favourite Justin Dentmon will be heading to Galatasaray on a one-year deal worth $900,000 [€792,000].

The signing, reported by Eurohoops is yet another major statement of intent by the Turkish side who captured the EuroCup title last season.

So far, Deon Thompson, Alex Tyus and a returning Blake Schilb are the notable additions to this season’s roster.

Dentmon will be an almost like-for-like replacement for EuroCup MVP Erick McCollum, who has returned to China following a season with the Istanbul outfit.

The 30-year-old guard is best remembered for his time at Zalgiris, where during his one season in the 2013-14 season, he averaged 16.8 points and 4.1 assists a game.

The American has had numerous stints in the NBA and also with EA7 Milano.
