Egemen Guven is an athletic, skilled big man that can score and rebound the basketball. He can is a solid finisher around the basket, and he also can get scores in the low post to help his team.
Plus, he will get after it on the glass to haul plenty of rebounds to help his team. However, he will need to improve his shooting range, and he can struggle to finish plays in traffic, as he rarely draws free throws.
But mostly, Guven has not seen much playing time in the top professional leagues, so it may be tough to get a real feel for his game. For the time being, he may project to be a second round draft and stash type of pick in 2018.
