    But situation of Kenan Sipahi playing for Turkey is very different. His older brother was studying in Bursa. He invited him to Bursa and Kenan visited Tofas team to practice. He was 12 years old. They were impressed and decided to sign him. Good for turkish basketball.

    I am intrigued with this Furkan Aldemir. A bigman with the mobility and a soft touch from the field.

    Tell me more about him? Is he a true PF or a SF?

    Sacramento is interested with this prospect.

    Many thanks! Do you think he can still develop a dependable jumpshot at this stage?

    Thanks again. How about his post moves? Can he still improve in those?

    i don't expect anything special on offence from him.maybe he can have solid hook shot but nothing else.imo he will be good hustle player.

    i am sure some Turkish fellas can explain him better than me.thanks

    5 1/2 years passed over initial post. So, who else we can add to the list now? Just listing some candidates;

    - Furkan Korkmaz (definitely...we are missing a shooter/scorer (SG) badly, and he seems to a very prolific scorer)
    - Berkay Candan
    - Kenan Sipahi (u18 mvp and all that... I hope he really moves to Efes as claimed, so we can have a better opinion)
    - Okben Ulubay
    - Metecan Birsen
    - Burak Haciismail (bad u18 performace, but not given up on him yet)
    - Kerem Kanter (an outsider, but I'm sure this guy will be an important contributor. From what I've seen he has "that" mentality)
    - Emircan Kosut
    - Erbil Eroglu (another PG prospect, probably will end up in oblivioin like his predecessors)
    - Tayfun Erulku
    - Ramazan Tekin

    Maxim Mutaf has already passed 22 years of age, and we haven't seen any flash. Safak Edge is close to the limit as well.

    Of the young professional players that get playing time Furkan Aldemir is the most promising one, and being barely 22 he's still a prospect in my eyes. I expect very much from him.

    İ think we have the gold mine with 96' born players
    A promisin pg-------> Berk Uğurlu
    A rising star --------> Okben Ulubay
    A nice point forward -> Tolga Geçim
    Another Memo? ----> Egemen Güven
    Plus Mehmet Alemdaroğlu, Mert Çevik

    Maybe this 95-96 generation is the most promising then any other ones including 78-79 and 86-87, i hope we can develop this kids properly...

    and it seems Ayberk Olmaz (96' , 210cm) will join this incredibly talented generation. The kid comes from nowhere, have only played basketball for just past 2 years and already impressed everyone including legendary coach Obradoviç.

    These kids are has to grow up fastly. I have extremely exititing about these kids. btw you have to add Oğulcan Baykan. Egemen Guven and Okben Ulubay come into prominence among these guys but my favourite player absolutely Tolga Geçim. I have watched him as live really incredible. In spite of that his 2.05 height his ballhandler and court vision like a top level pg huge prospect maybe ıt will be overstate but his playing style like a Magic johnson impressed!

    What do you mean?
    Cedi seemed pretty confident in pre-season (and apparently in some league games last year)... could be a rotation player at Efes this year.
