According to the report, Fenerbahce GM, Aydin Ors, stated Gist will not be with the club next season after Gist tested positive for dope in June.

Gist was a 2008 second round draft selection by the Spurs, the team held his rights for two seasons before Gist went to play overseas in 2010.

There is a huge lesson for Gist to learn from this incident. Let’s hope he makes takes the right steps giong forward.
