Izzet Turkyilmaz may be a relatively new name on the draft radar, but his play here has established him as a potential late second round draft and stash pick. Competing in the second division of Turkey until last season, when he saw limited playing time for Banvit in the EuroCup, Turkyilmaz emerged as a spot player for the team this season. Standing 6'11.5 without shoes and possessing and narrow 211-pound frame, the young center has an interesting mix or fluidity, athleticism, and shooting ability. Possessing some ball-handling ability and shooting range, Turkyilmaz can do some damage from the perimeter and finishes plays above the rim with explosiveness –big reasons he was the second youngest member of the Turkish National Team at last summer's Eurobasket (Enes Kanter was the youngest).

Turkyilmaz's biggest weaknesses are his lack of high level experience and physical strength. He's capable of making plays offensively, but doesn't have a mature offensive arsenal at this juncture. His length makes him a presence as a shot blocker, but his lack of lower body strength and fundamentals is a major limiting factor for him on the defensive end both at and away from the rim. Turkyilmaz is a unique player nonetheless given his athleticism and offensive game for a 7-footer, and the player he might become three to four years down the round may interest some teams.
