Czech basketball player Jan Veselý is leaving the NBA after three seasons to join the Turkish club Fenerbahce. Veselý was seventh in the draft in 2011 and played for Washington Wizards and Denver Nuggets. After signing a two-year contract with Fenerbahce on Tuesday, the Ostrava-born forward said he had been considering a return to Europe for some time. The move means there are now no Czech players in the NBA.
