Alperen Şengün 

Post#1 » by ofeek » Sun Nov 15, 2020 12:28 pm

Born on July, 25th, 2002, 18 years old Alperen Şengün has been having a great season so far.

Here is his wikipedia page;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alperen_%C5%9Eeng%C3%BCn

Being in the member of the same class as Usman Garuba, he has been a bit under the radar during 2020-2021 season which may change very soon. So, I really think he deserves a separate thread here.

In a game which just ended less than an hour ago, he put up yet another solid performance with 30 points, 13 boards and 3 blocks in 35 minutes. More remarkably, he did reach 30 points with only 15 field goal attempt where he made 11/14 2pts and 0/1 3pts.

So far in Turkish top tier league within 8 games, he averaged 20.3 PPG, 9.7 RPG, 1.4 APG, 1.4 BPG in 29.5 MPG.

You can find the collection of some of his performances so far in the league;





Turkish league may not be as competitive as Spanish ACB, but with Euroleague powerhouses Fenerbahçe Beko and Anadolu Efes, it is not a league to be underestimated, either.

So, he is by far the most intriguing Turkish prospect with NBA probabilities within the next years to come.

I heard of this kid, and Turkish league is very good considering. That said, this is first time actually seeing his highlights, and I gotta say that his stats are far more impressive than his tape sadly. He is very young so he should expand this game, but those videos were underwhelming in my opinion. Pick and roll big, but not really athletic or long.
