Bursaspor brings in Olaseni

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.
