Shoots well from outside and likes the fast tempo game, but knows how to run a team even at a controlled ball game. Should improve his defense, that seemed so-so in his first European experience.

Anadolu Efes Istanbul (BSL) is close to sign 33-year old American guard Ben Gordon (190-91kg-83, college: Connecticut) who played last time at Golden State Warriors in NBA. He has a double citizenship as he also holds British passport.
The previous (14-15) season he played at the Magic in NBA where in 56 games he recorded 6.2ppg and 1.1rpg.

He was a member of USA international program for some years. Gordon was called to USA Senior National Team back in 2003 and previously for U18 National Team in 2000.
He has played also professionally for other NBA teams like Detroit Pistons and Charlotte Hornets.
The scouts decsribe him following way: Athletic combination guard with high basketball I.Q. .Superb leaper with excellent shooting range.
Outlook (by NBADraft.TK):
Positives: Ben Gordon is a great combo guard. A great scorer with a versatile offensive game. He is a deadly three-point shooter. Not just a long-range bomber, he has a good midrange game and is a good free throw shooter. Has the ability to take it strong to the hoop with exceptional strength and quickness for his size. Has a great handle as and is also good passer. Gordon is also a great athlete. Very quick and has great leaping ability. Has a near 40-inch vertical, which allows him to throw down impressive dunks despite his size. A solid defender, he uses his strength and lateral quickness well. A good rebounder for the guard position.
Negatives: Not a natural point guard. Gordon's ability to run the point os questionable. He played shooting guard at UConn with Taliek Brown as the point. Might be better at the shooting guard, but will have to play point guard in the NBA. (Jason Terry, Steve Francis). Can be a streaky shooter

In 2002 Haislip was drafted by Milwaukee Bucks (NBA) in first round (13th overall). He attended University of Tennessee and it will be his 15th (!!!) season in pro basketball.
Among other achievements Haislip's team made it to the African Champions Cup Final Four in 2014. He received also Afrobasket.com All-African Champions Cup 1st Team award in 2014.
Haislip is a very experienced player. Thanks to his pro career he managed to play on four different continents (Europe, Asia, Africa and of course North America) in six different countries. Haislip has played previously professionally also in Greece (Panathinaikos), Lebanon (Champville), Spain (Laboral Kutxa), Tunisia (Club Africain) and Turkey (Anadolu Efes, Trabzonspor and Eskisehir Basket) and China (Guandong Tigers, Jiangsu Dragons, Foshan and Leopards).
He is close to retirement age as a player. It may be one of last seasons in his extensive career, which he may end at Gaziantep.
The scouts decsribe him following way: A versatile player who spends most of his time in the paint but can also come out and play on the wing. Not so many players have the physical skills he does. Has an impressive vertical jump and runs the court better than guards. He's also a willing defender who can block lots of shots.
