After a season away, Kenny Hayes is returning to Buyukcekmece in Turkey. The point guard signed with the Turkish team for next season after spending last season in France with Limoges CSP. Hayes averaged 11.9 points and 2.8 assists per game across all competitions for Limoges, including a 12.3 points per game average in France's LNB Pro A as his team advanced to the semifinals of the league playoffs, as well as the second stage of EuroCup play.
The Miami (OH) product will be joining a Buyukcekmece team that went a dismal 10-20 in the Turkish Basketball Super League and advanced to the second round of the FIBA Europe Cup. Hayes has also played in Italy, Kazakhstan, Israel, Venezuela, Spain and the United States during his career.
