Anigwe is first set to play in the delayed WNBA season after being named to the LA Sparks’ final roster following a trade from Dallas Wings.
After a dominant season in Turkey, Anigwe then made her GB Senior debut after making the final 12 for the FIBA Olympic Qualifying tournament back in February.
The London-born centre previously represented USA at youth level, winning two World Championship golds with the Under-17s and Under-19s.
Cukurova had a 9-10 record in their domestic league, but struggled in Europe last season after picking up just three wins in 14 games in EuroLeague Women action.
