Hometown: Edirne, Turkey
-Good physical profile. Huge shoulders.
-Covers a lot of ground defensively
-Shows some timing as a shot-blocker
-Solid offensive rebounder
-Has decent touch around the basket
-Limited offensive player.
-Not an aggressive finisher around the basket. Settles for soft floaters instead of using athleticism inside the paint
-Lacks a degree of toughness and intensity
-Doesn't have any post moves
-Ugly shooting stroke
-Gets posted up inside and doesn't always show enough fight
-Feel for game is average. Little bit of a space cadet
Outlook: Talented, but underachieving big man who hasn't shown much improvement in the last year or two. Has excellent tools with his solid size, big frame and ability to cover ground effortlessly. Has some moments where he looks impressive, but struggles to string together effective plays on both ends of the floor consistently. Does not have a great reputation off the court in Turkey. Still has time to figure things out and reach his potential, but hasn't made great strides as of late.
-Can finish around the rim impressively off two feet
-Can make a mid-range jumper. Will attempt an occasional 3-pointer
-Little bit soft with back to the basket
-Raw, not aggressive
-Struggled to play as a backup
Outlook: Came in with significant hype after a very strong showing at the NIJT L'Hospitalet in February, but only played 13 minutes per game in Germany. Looks very young and in an early stage of his development physically. Started playing basketball late reportedly. Struggled with his role and did not look particularly happy with his lack of playing time, which prevented him from being overly effective when he was in the game.
