Summary:

Omer Yurtseven is a skilled big man that could project to be a second round pick in the 2020 draft.  Though he had a relatively disappointing freshman season, he played very well at the 2017 NBA Draft Combine, but after playing his sophomore year at NC State, he has since transferred to Georgetown.​

He is a versatile scorer that can do so in multiple ways, and he can do so to create mismatches that can swing in his favor.  Yurtseven also is a solid rebounder, as he will help his team on the boards this year.​

But he will need to improve defensively, and he will need to show teams that he can be a consistent performer in games.  Even still, Yurtseven may have the smarts and the skills to excel as a role player in the NBA.​
