Recently promoted Bursaspor has been scouting and signing players that can bring flair and a spark to the newcomers of the Turkish Basketball Super League (BSL).
Olaseni a British National Men’s Team player has had exposure to the college level with Iowa Hawkeyes and has had a budding Euroball career ranging from Fuanelbrada – Spain to Wurzburg – Germany.
Olaseni is a classical big that does not utilize shooting from behind the arch in his game. He does bring a lot of inside fire power and has the knack of being able to be a shot block threat outright.
Aside from making his NBA level debut back in 2015 at the Summer League Olaseni has been a workhorse that has steadily been sought out by contending teams looking to prove themselves. We do have to state that we applaud Bursaspor in acquiring Olaseni as a big man that can be a lethal threat. Coach Erdoğan will likely make use of the big frame and seek out the most power he can get out of this player.
While the team currently has the following roster spots filled they still are in the process of finalizing things.
Here is the last updated roster situation:
