Wayne Chism has accepted an offer to play basketball for Antalya in the Turkish Basketball League. This is the same league that former Vols Chris Lofton and Tyler Smith played for.
Jared Karnes, a local attorney and executive vice president at Allegiant Athletic Agency, confirmed that Chism has a signed a ten-month, six-figure contract.
The former Tennessee forward played for the Sacramento Kings in their Las Vegas summer league. Chism had an invitation to play in their fall training camp, but after learning that the Kings had signed two additional players on Friday, Chism felt it was in his best interest to decline their offer and play overseas.
Karnes said that Chism is still interested in playing the NBA, and this move to Turkey will help him reach that goal. Chism will leave for Turkey in mid-August.
