Anadolu Efes Istanbul are in advanced negotiations with Jock Landale, per BasketNews sources.

Landale, 25, was targeted by Olympiacos Piraeus recently. However, 2.11 m center wanted to keep his NBA options open, so he turned down the offer from Greece.

This time, Anadolu Efes offers a lucrative deal, which might convince Landale to come back to the EuroLeague.

Landale led Melbourne United to the NBL championship. Australian big man was the Finals MVP, averaging a double-double (14.7 PPG, 11 RPG) against Perth Wildcats. In the NBL season 2020-21, he averaged 16.4 PPG and 7.9 RPG.

Landale had a promising EuroLeague debut with Zalgiris Kaunas, where he averaged 11 PPG and 4.4 RPG in season 2019-2020.
