Galatasaray Istanbul has changed its squad quite a bit during the season. The Turkish club lost in particular Courtney Fortson, who was to join AS Monaco before having to change his mind. 12th out of 16 in BSL with 7 wins in 21 games, the club has just started Pierre Jackson (1.80 m, 29 years old).
After trying to start his career at ASVEL in 2013 and then to falter during the preparation for the season, he exploded the counters in D-League to the point of finding an opportunity in EuroLeague, already in Istanbul but for the Fenerbahçe. Then seen stealthily in the NBA with Dallas and then again in EuroLeague at Maccabi Tel Aviv, Las Vegan has especially hit hard in China. In 2019-2020, he made his return to the G-League, at the South Bay Lakers. Last summer, he signed for Panathinaikos Athens but ultimately never played there. It is therefore in Istanbul that he will try to revive.
