Shavonte Zellous signs with Turkish club Fenerbahce
Shavonte Zellous signed with Turkish basketball team Fenerbahce on Friday.
Zellous played last season for rival Galatasary, leading that team to the championship in both the domestic and Euroleague. She has been embroiled in a salary dispute for the past few months with that club.
She refused to go back to the Galatasary this winter until she got what she was owed in bonuses. The Turkish club terminated her $315,000 annual contract in late September. Her case is still pending with an arbitrator assigned by FIBA.
Zellous, who plays for the Indiana Fever in the summer, had been spending time away from basketball. But last month, she played with the Harlem Globetrotters when they came to Indianapolis.
