Furkan Aldemir is being one of the good surprises in Euroleague 2011-2012. After many years in Karsiyaka he decided to leave signing for Galatasaray. In 2011 summer he showed in the U20 Division "A" European championship of Bilbao (Spain) what he is capable to do inside the paint. He was named in the All-Tournament Team with MVP Mirotic (Spain), Dubljevic (Montenegro), Gentile (Italy) and Fournier (France). He collected a huge register in rebounds (15.9), adding 14.8 points.
He is a rebound specialist. Has great positions on defense but specially on offense to grab rebounds. Boxes out very well, and uses his big wingspan to catch a lot. Using his skills he also blocks many shots. He is a good defender, over center and power-forwards also. Has mobility, being smart. On ofense he knows how to move without ball. Very dangerous receiving the ball inside the paint, using his wingspan to dunk o score lay-ups easy. On transition he runs very well fastbreak, and also backwards recovering on defense.
