Bryant was on an expiring contract, but a 28-year-old guard has reached an agreement to extend his stay at the club.

Bryant is one of the main reasons Efes holds a 2-1 lead against Fenerbahce in the best-of-five Turkish league semifinals.

In the three games against Fenerbahce, he has averaged 17.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 2.0 assists, including a stellar 21-point performance in a Game 3 victory.

In the 2022-23 EuroLeague season, Bryant has averaged 8.5 points (60.5% 2FG, 39.0% 3FG), 4.1 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and a 9.9 performance index rating.

During the decisive stretch of the season, starting from Round 20, Bryant has been averaging 11.6 points on 66.7% 2-point and 45% 3-point shooting. He has also contributed 5.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game.

During this period, his plus/minus rating has been the third highest on the Efes team.

Bryant became only the second professional basketball player to win an NBA title and a EuroLeague championship in consecutive seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks in 2021 and Efes in 2022.

He arrived in Istanbul in 2021 and became an important part of the Efes team. Recently, Bryant shared an emotional video from his time in Istanbul.
