NBA Comparision: Omer Asik

Strengths: Another big man from the Turkish camp … Aldemir is a center with good size and adequate athletic skills … His footspeed and the coordination of his upperbody make him a very interesting player, ready to play in the NBA … His main attribute is the propensity to grab rebounds: he has strong instincts for this part of the game … On offense he lacks a polished one-on-one game, but understands all situations and is always ready for passes … Another important skill for a big man is his efficiency in free throws, and we can consider him reliable (75% in Euroleague, 51% in Turkish League). On defense he’s also interesting: he’s smart, quick lateral movement and has a sense of timing for blocks …

Weaknesses: Needs to become better at creating offense for himself, aside from garbage buckets …  His body is perfect for Europe but might be a little bit undersized for fighting in the NBA paint …

Notes: Impressive in 2011 U20 European Championship where he averaged 14.8 ppg, 15.9 rpg, 1.3 apg, 1.7 bpg, and was awarded in the first team of the competition.
