Gala Spicen Up Roster With Curry

Galatasaray continue to compile what is looking an increasingly impressive EuroLeague Women roster with each passing week after they moved to secure the services of Monique Curry who will follow the likes of Sylvia Fowles, Gintare Petronyte and Seimone Augustus to Istanbul.

Curry will step up to the elite club competition of Womens basketball having played last season in EuroCup Women with Russian side Nadezhda who themselves will also play in EuroLeague Women this season.

Petronyte Moves To Gala
Galatasaray have made another significant move to further boost their EuroLeague Women prospects after striking a two season deal with former FIBA Europe Young Player of The Year Ginatre Petronyte. The Lithuanian star will step out onto the floor in Istanbul for her ambitious new team as they desperately try to move out of the shadow of city rivals Fenerbahce who have made plenty of noise so far during the off-season.
