Lorenzo Brown is nearing an agreement with Fenerbahce Beko that should be confirmed soon, per Eurohoops sources.

A coveted free agent following his solid Turkish Airlines EuroLeague debut with Crvena Zvezda mts, is on his way to the Turkish powerhouse. Eurohoops previously reported that he was in advanced talks with Panathinaikos OPAP.

His first European run was shortened by the coronavirus pandemic, but the NC State alum and former NBA player still managed to produce a strong campaign. He averaged 12.3 points, 4.6 assists, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.1 steals per EuroLeague outing, also put up 10.6 points per ABA League match.

After appointing Igor Kokoskov as the new head coach, Fener is making a strong push to strengthen its squad with Dyshawn Pierre, Johnathan Hamilton, Edgaras Ulanovas, and Danilo Barthel already on board for the upcoming 2020-21 season.
