The 28-year-old is currently playing in the Finals of the Italian playoffs with Reyer Venezia locked up at 2-2 with Schio ahead of the Game 5 decider this weekend.
Meanwhile, Anigwe, 24, averaged a double-double of 16.5 points and 11.8 rebounds per game as Cukurova finished sixth in the league standings before a first round exit in the playoffs.
Anigwe was also waived by LA Sparks earlier this week just ahead of the start of the 2021 WNBA season.
