Posted this in the story as well, but his team in Turkey posted this video yesterday of Furkan Aldemir pranking a teammate.

Furkan Awesome. Could be a solid backup PF. He's not your usual Euro player.

After watching David Andersen and Donatas Motiejunas scrub it up I'm a bit skeptical.

Dmo has shown flashes of being a very good offensive player.

But he played so few minutes for his team last season! Why is that being overlooked?

Why do euroleague players have such poor muscle definition? I would imagine any 18 yr old who is planning a career in basketball would see lean muscle as a critical element of success which can be acquired fairly easily.

While on Europe and your efforts over there and young players, the guy you got in a small deal late in the draft, kid from Turkey. What has he done?

Yeah, Furkan Aldemir. He's been fabulous. Good chance he might come over, which would add more pressure. We don't need a ton of young players at this point. Aldemir has a good chance to be in Houston next year.

Can you describe his game?

Basically Omer Asik but 3 inches shorter.

The PF version of Omer Asik?

He can probably play more C. He's strong and thick enough. He just won't be 7'1. He'll be 6'10/6'11. He can screen. He can roll on offense. Pretty limited offensively. Elite rebounder, one of the best Europe has ever seen.

6.9 rebounds in 16.8 minutes is a ridiculous rebounding rate.

Yep, pretty crazy.

Without having really seen too much game footage, I could see Aldemir being a Reggie Evans type of player, only taller and able to play center. And hopefully with less grabbing of other people's crotches.

If he can be a good backup PF who can rebound and finish,he will go beyond my expectations.

LOVE that comp. If he can be like Reggie Evans, I'll be super happy. We need a ferocious rebounder.

He's a big 6'9". Similar to Greg Smith in that he's more of a 4/5 than a true 4 or true 5.

Touched on his height/size on draft day:

What jumps out first about Aldemir is he looks significantly bigger than he's listed. Just appears to be much heavier than 220-230 he's listed at, not to mention a few inches taller.

If you're interested in learning a little more about Furkan's game and how he projects to the NBA, I can still recommend both of the scouting reports I linked to.
