Ivory Latta switches teams

This news is about a week old, but I didn’t catch it: Ivory Latta and the Turkish Basketball League team she was playing for, Team Ceyhan Belediyasi, came to a mutual agreement to terminate her contact. Latta will play for the Maccabi Ramat Chen team of the Israeli League for the remainder of the winter. Before her departure, Latta had averaged 20.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.9 assists for Ceyhan.

Seimone Augustus of Galtatasaray is ranked fifth in the Turkish League in points per game, at 16.4 (fourth now that Latta is gone); Alexis Hornbuckle of Besiktas is fifth in rebounds per game and first in steals; and Shannnon Bobbitt of Botas is second in assists per game with an average of six. The complete list is on the Turkish Basketball League main page:

Kind of an odd grouping to me.
