A late bloomer, Gonlum is already 35 but the power forward has hardly shown signs of aging. He played a big role in Turkey's qualifying for EuroBasket 2013, averaging nearly 12 points, more than four rebounds and nearly one steal in the Qualification Round last summer. It marked the return to the Turkish national team after Gonlum missed EuroBasket 2011 when he injured his ACL during training in the build-up to that tournament. Gonlum came back strong from the injury in the 2011-12 season, even signing a two-year extension with Anadolu Efes, the club he has played for since 2005. Gonlum remains a consistent scorer in the blocks, regularly shooting near 60% from the field. He is also a solid rebounder who can pick an opponent's pocket to start the break for his team.
