Former NBA Guard Heads To Turkey

After parts of four seasons in the NBA, and spending parts of the last couple of seasons playing internationally, 6'5" swingman Wayne Selden is heading to Turkey for his next globetrotting stop. He's signed on with the Turkish team Manisa, according to Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.

Selden played in three games for the New York Knicks last season, and previously spent some time with the Chicago Bulls, Memphis Grizzlies and New Orleans Pelicans. He averaged 7.2 points in 127 career NBA games, at about 19 minutes per contest.

Last year Selden played overseas, with Ironi Nes Ziona in Israel in the 2020-21 season, averaging 13.3 points and 3.5 rebounds in about 25 minutes per game. 

He started this season playing in Italy for two games, and averaged 20 points, before leaving the club. The team, Tezenis Verona, actually considered suing Selden for breaking his contract. His agent, however, said that Verona never compensated him for his services, so they had no case.
