As the link notes, also had 8 and 7 vs Nets this preseason at age 16

He will be in the NCAA next season. He seems like a really good prospect.
I could very well see the Hawks... starting Taurean Prince at the 3, who is already better than Crowder, imo.

Spanking the nets when he was only 16 (albeit a preseason game), sign me up. He would make Danny proud.

It will be interesting to see how he handles the college game next season. My guess is that if he is able to do well in Europe, drop 8 and 7 in 15 mins against "nba level competition" which is significantly better than the majority of NCAA players he will face, he will do well in college.

BRB gotta go rev up the Faruk bandwagon machine.
My 2017 Draft Rankings:       My 2017 FA Celtic Rankings:
1.) Markelle Fultz                   1.) Gordon Hayward
2.) Josh Jackson                    2.) Blake Griffin
3.) Lonzo Ball                           3.) No other realistic options
4.) Jayson Tatum                        move the needle much
5.) Lauri Markkanen

That 2017 swap looks even better now.

Turkish forward Omer Yurtseven told ESPN he is 7 feet and weighs 240 pounds. Just committed to NC State.

Good size and weight.
