The Sixers acquired the rights to Furkan Aldemir in a trade on Thursday.
He's going to stay overseas and the details on the reason for his inclusion on this deal are still sketchy. Aldemir was a second-round pick in 2012 and isn't expected to make an impact in the NBA in the near future. Fri, Jul 5, 2013 08:34:00 PM

There is reportedly a "good chance" that the Rockets will sign Turkish PF Furkan Aldemir next season.

Aldemir is an impressive rebounder and defender, but his offensive game remains very raw. He's 21 years old and averaged a mere 17 minutes per game for his Turkish team in 2012-13, and fantasy owners can safely assume he won't help their teams as a rookie.

The Rockets have reportedly traded for Turkish big man Furkan Aldemir as a part of the Lamar Odom/Mo Williams deal.

Aldemir was the No. 53 overall pick in Thursday night's draft by the Clippers, and this move comes as no surprise after the team was reportedly planning to move him. He's set to stay in Europe until 2014.

The Clippers took Turkish big man Furkan Aldemir with the 53rd pick in the draft.

They plan on moving him, according to several sources, but he might be able to play in the NBA. He's 6-10 and a strong rebounder, and can also shoot it. But he'll have to add some beef to his frame to be able to bang under the boards at an NBA level. He's also locked up in Europe until 2014, so whatever team he lands with likely won't have to worry about him for a couple years.

The Cavaliers are said to be looking at Turkish forward Furkan Aldemir early in the second round of Thursday's draft.

He's locked up in Europe until 2014 and could be a project, but also looks like a nice guy to draft-and-stash this year.
