Keith Langford has received a Turkish passport

Armani Milan's scorer Keith Langford will play in FIBA World Cup

Turkey



Armani Milan's veteran 6-foot-4 scoring guard Keith Langford - the No. 1 Euroleague scorer this season - has received a Turkish passport, sources close to the situation told Sportando.

 

According to sources, Langford's Turkish paperwork has been filed a couple weeks ago.

 

Langford, who is currently one game away from Euroleague elimination as Milan trail Maccabi Tel Aviv 2-1 in quarterfinals playoffs, will participate in the FIBA World Cup for the Turkish national-team over the upcoming summer in Spain.

 

Turkey have been pooled to Group C along with the Ukraine, Dominican Republic, Finland, New Zealand and United States.

 

Furthermore, Euroleague-competition personnel stress that due to the above mentioned, Langford is expected to receive a contract proposal from Turkish-side Galatasaray Istanbul with knowledge that head coach Ergin Ataman - also coach for the Turks' national-team - is a fan of the 30-year-old Euroleague leading scorer.
