Averaged just 3.0 points and 1.9 rebounds per game for Eurocup last season, after playing in the second division of Turkey prior to that...Was the second-youngest player on the Turkish National Team last year...Legitimate seven-footer, but has a slender frame at just 211 pounds...Has some ball-handling skills for his size and has above-average athleticism for a seven-footer...Can extend defenses with decent shooting range, but lacks the physical attributes to be a consistent contributor in the paint.
