Thomas Abercrombie's offseason globetrotting will continue, with the New Zealand Breakers swingman signing a short-term deal in Turkey.

Abercrombie will play for Demir Insaat Buyukcekmece, who currently sit 12th in the Turkish first division, with a 6-12 record.

Abercrombie has previously spent time playing in France and Spain, and has experience in the Turkish league after playing for Pinar Karsiyaka in 2016.

There, he averaged 10 points and four rebounds per game, shooting 41% from three in 11 games with the side.

Buyukcekmece have 11 games left in their season, with the move meaning Abercrombie will not suit up in the New Zealand NBL this season.

The 29-year-old averaged 12 points and five rebounds in 20 games for the Breakers this season, shooting 41% from the floor and 43% from deep.
