Back-to-back EuroLeague champions Anadolu Efes Istanbul retained another core member of the team.

According to BasketNews sources, Tibor Pleiss agreed to a contract extension with Efes until the summer of 2024. The 32-year-old's current contract would have expired after the 2022-23 season.

Pleiss was drawing interest from other EuroLeague teams, but Efes managed to lock the German forward for at least 2 years, sources told BasketNews.
