Besiktas Rumors

3. Demir Dogan | 6-8 | Forward | Turkey | Besiktas | 2006. The 15-year-old Dogan proved why he’s considered one of the top prospects in all of Turkey with his play in Novi Sad, averaging 16.2 points, 9.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 2.4 blocks and 1.4 steals in 33.1 minutes while playing up a year. Dogan has clear physical upside standing close to 6-9 in shoes with big hands and feet, long arms, and a lean yet projectable frame that should fill out in time. Reminiscent of a young Aleksej Pokusevski physically (all arms and legs), Dogan figures to get to at least 6-10 or 6-11 by the time he reaches his physical peak.
Bobby Brown is unlikely to join Turkish team Besiktas, according to sources. The American guard spent the last two years in China and was now talking with the Turkish team to finish the season in TBL. Brown would have replaced Chris Lofton who is on his way to leave Besiktas after two seasons. Brown ended the season in China averaging 31.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 6.3 assists in 41 games.
