After winning the second EuroLeague title in a row, Turkish powerhouse Anadolu Efes are already planning a big transfer market campaign for this summer. The team coached by Ergin Ataman has already reached agreements with Will Clyburn and Ante Zizic, while also strongly considering Josh Nebo.

But the transfer goals for Anadolu Efes are not done yet. The Turkish powerhouse are also trying to lure Dwayne Bacon away from Monaco, a source told BasketNews.

The interest for Bacon is a strong one, the source added, and the American swingman might represent another huge addition to the roster of coach Ataman. SDNA was the first to report about the interest of the player. 

In his first EuroLeague season, Bacon was absolutely a factor in helping Monaco to reach the playoffs. He averaged 14 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.1 assists, and 1 steal per game with the French side. 

Monaco would love to keep him around for next season too but so far the club hasn't been able to find a financial agreement with the player, a source told BasketNews. 

Before joining Monaco, Bacon spent multiple seasons in the NBA, playing for the Charlotte Hornets first and then with the Orlando Magic. 

The 26-year-old player was one of the most pleasant surprises of the EuroLeague season and immediately became one of the hottest names on the EuroLeague market once Monaco's EuroLeague season came to an end.
