Furkan Aldemir NBA Draft Profile

Furkan Aldemir, Power Forward, Turkey



Furkan Aldemir is one of those players who does one thing extremely well. In this case it is on the glass. Aldemir, a 6-9 power forward, simply has a knack for finding the ball. He is a rebounding machine, but does have more to his game. He is a decent athlete with surprising quickness. That is most prevalent on the defensive side of the floor. He has good instincts for blocking shots and has more quickness than most opposing players will have.

Unfortunately, Aldemir’s quickness does not translate very well on offense. He is a typical European in the sense that he can shoot the ball, but he does create shots for himself and most of his scoring comes from easy put backs off of rebounds. He needs to develop more of an offensive game.


Final Projection:

Aldemir is just about ready to physically compete in the NBA. He may need to add a few pounds, but he can immediately be a solid rebounder. His vast international experience has given NBA teams plenty of opportunities to see what he can do and somebody will take a chance on him in the second round.
