Latoya Sanders obtains Turkish passport

The Turks have given another American player their passport, this time it’s LaToya Sanders, according to basketfaul.

Her Turkish name will be Lara Sanders, which isn’t as far from original as Melisa Can (Michelle Campbell) or Bahar Ozturk (Barbara Turner).

Sanders is sitting out the WNBA after death of her father.

Last season she played for Kayseri KASKI in Turkey, averaging 15.7 points and 9.3 rebounds in Turkish league and 17.8 points and 11.2 rebounds in EuroCup Women.
