Former number one NBA Draft pick Anthony Bennett has been released by newly crowned EuroLeague champions Fenerbahce.

The Canadian international will return to the United States to wait the next phase of his career.

Bennett was included in the EuroLeague roster of the team, because there was no limitation on the roster spots according to players’ nationalities.

However, in the Turkish BSL every team can have up to eight non Turkish players and activate six of them in every game.

Bennett was the odd man out mainly due to him joining the roster towards the end of the season.

Pero Antic occupied the last open non Turkish spot on the BSL roster.
