    David Mutaf, U18 Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul

    Mutaf will be playing his third ANGT. Last season, he averaged 16.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists at ANGT Belgrade. The 1.98-meter guard helped Turkey finish third at the FIBA U16 European Championship 2018 when he collected 11.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. Mutaf is an excellent shooter - both spot up and off the dribble. He has very good court vision. Mutaf, who is left-handed, is very effective at creative attacking to the left. His right hand has improved since last year and is getting better. Mutaf has good size for his position and is fast enough to defend quick guards.

    Well Fener is not famous for its youth work. Sarper David Mutaf is the only promising prospect. Very good combo guard material + a very solid sharpshooter. I can see that he can use his weak hand better but no pick and roll at all in his game. He should train with Sloukas more.

    He must leave Fenerbahce as soon as possible.

    Wrong thread. But, yeah, to me he also looked like bigger Sloukas. Might be very nice player in a long run.

    Kartal Özmizrak (95) broke his career high today in the turkish super league with 29 points and with 5 of 10 three pointer and 4 assists against Gaziantep.

    Banvit defeated BJK at home with 20 points. Very low intensity game of Sengün who was a bit unlucky today but it seems he will evolve to an power forward in the future. A midrange shot would help him a lot in the future.

    Hazers outside shot is improving. He played very good defense today always focussed and intense. Had 10 points 2 assists and 3 steals.

    Sarper David Mutaf played with 22 points (60% from the field, 44% from the 3 pointer line) in four games. Solid size with 197cm, very fluid with the ball, solid passing skills, can finish with both hands at the rim and a deadly sharpshooter. The youth league is enough at the moment for a 17 year old guy but from 2021 Fenerbahce really need to find a club for this kid.

He is Gelisim Koleji player, best place for young players, next year U19 league and then 2nd division etc.

    Berkay Dönmez(SF) is the most important prospect in the 05 generation for TBF at this stage. Therefore he was the main ballhandler in the beginning of the tournament. He could only show his potential in the last game.

    Kaan Berk Tarla(SG) is good but mature.

    Alp Sarikaya(SG) has very big upside if he grows.

    Tolga Öz(PF) is just 195. Before 14 months he moved to Efes because Efes expected that he will reach 205-210. Very talented player but too small for PF.

    Evren Demirci(PF/C) is solid but Mehmet Efe Demirel(PF/C) & Halil Ibrahim Aksoy(C/PF) are the bigs with upside in the 05 generation, both are very interesting players and in 1-2 years both could reach another level.

    Tolga Öz & Mehmet Efe Demirel don´t get any playing time in Efes. That shows again, for Efes is player development not important.

    We could also see the great talent of Demir Dogan & Emin Kara, but they are too young.
    + Ali Oralkan(PF/SF) is an interesting player.

    Turkish coaches should follow Özgür Cengiz carefully. They should see how much opportunities you have if you are a good 1on1 player. I was a huge Ömer Yasir Kücük fan only because of his 1on1 talent, he had never good IQ or playmaking-skills, Ömer Yasir Kücük was a scoring killer at U14-U16 but last summer we have seen he lost his penetrations, maybe he can find it in the USA. Additionally Özgür Cengiz has huge IQ on offense and defense. Again for me he is not very interesting because he is too small(170), most difficult position(PG) and too young(15) but he has just amazing talent.

    Eray Büyükcangaz should not play full time PG, he is not pure PG, he is more SG/PG/SF and he can show his talent as SG much more.

    Berke Büyüktuncel has to show his offensive talent much more, he must be able to score on his own. His mentality is a bit like Okben´s, he has the potential to be a star but doesn´t want it etc.

    The 2004 generation looking great but same was with the 2001 back then too. At U14-U15-U16 etc. Atakan Erdek-Ömercan Ilyasoglu-Mustafa Kurtuldum-Ömer Yasir Kücük and the bigs Ismail Karabilen, Tarik Sezgün was the group. Except Ömercan and Mustafa the rest is garbage at this stage.

    In reality Okben has decent athleticism(enough for a high iq-player like him) but because of his character he plays with zero athleticism on offense. We saw the best Okben in 2013, he got banned from about Nov-2012 to March-April-2013 because of age falsing, then he showed some solid games in second division(first time in 2nd division) and led Pertev(Efes) to the U18 title with great domination, very active playing style etc. Because of the ban he wanted to show that his talent is real therefore we saw the most agressive, athletic Okben of all time. Then he played the U18 european championship, as expected he was the best player but he had some bad moments in SF and final game and Kenan Sipahi had some surprising moments therefore he became MVP.

    After summer 2013 he expected to be in the A-team of Efes but Mahmuti sent him to Pertev, Okben showed some great games, he played active but after some months he showed not much interest in 2nd division.

    Okben was with 20 the leader and best player of Yesilgiresun, even though Ricky Ledo and Anthony Gill were on the team. Therefore his performance for FMP is not a big deal. In reality he doesn´t want to play bb.

    My boy Gorener starting to create for himself...

    His development last season was not sufficient but in a lower level team he does everything on the court. His standing reach for a forward is amazing. Ball handling looks very solid. Step back is there, can get to the rim, does alley hoops thanks to his huge wingspan, swift first step and the most important thing... he defends aggressively.

    Bandirma kirmizi won his game against Samsun thanks to Eray Akyüz who caught fire on the last quarter. The most remarkable point is he has a very solid 3 point percentage in the last games. I am not convinced yet but if he develops a consistent outside shot it will change everything.

    40 Points with (6 of 12 from 3), 8 rebounds and 4 assists but he still has a long way to go. Need to see him in BSL. He has the leading gene like Ömer Yasir Kücük. Sometimes it is helpful and sometimes it costs you everything.
