Ömer Faruk Yurtseven, who wears the jersey of the American Basketball League (NBA) team Miami Heat, said that he believes he can enter the rotation and the top 5 as long as he works, and that he is ready for any exam.

After leaving Fenerbahçe and making his way to the American University Sports Federation (NCAA) Men’s Basketball League in 2016, Ömer played for the North Carolina State Wolfpack and Georgetown Hoyas teams. The national basketball player, who was not selected in the NBA draft he participated in in 2020, spent the last season in Oklahoma City Blue, one of the NBA Development League teams.

Omar, who can play pivot and power forward positions, said: “Two years. I don’t like to talk about money, but… It’s guaranteed for the first year.” said.

Regarding his performance in the NBA Summer League, the 23-year-old national basketball player said, “I felt how different the game was when I went from college to this level. This is part of the NBA preparation process. I would like to play in the summer league in 2020, when I entered the draft, so that I could show everyone what I can do. This year. It was a blessing. I was ready, and when I tried my best, the continuation came.” used the phrases.

“I’m ready for any test”

Asked if his performance would be enough to get him the time he wanted after the season started, Ömer said, “All I know is that I am in the Miami Heat culture that rewards employees. I have a lot of confidence in that. Erik Spoelstra is someone who has gone from the video room (video coordinator) to the head coach. “As long as I do my best and work, I think I can be in the top five. I am ready for any test. There are 1.5 months left in the season. I want to spend that period productively and start the regular season with 100 percent, just like I started the summer league.” gave the answer.

When asked about the pivots he took as an example and the unforgettable legends of the league’s history in modern basketball, Ömer said:

“Among my idols are Shaquille O’Neal, Dirk Nowitzki, Tim Duncan, Hakeem Olajuwon. Patrick Ewing, who is my coach at Georgetown University. There is Mehmet Okur from Turkey who was also my brother, who guided and supported me. Nowitzki and Olajuwon were players ahead of their time. There was no era that Shaq couldn’t play because of his physical dominance. Taking a piece of the game of all the names I mentioned and putting them together… I think modern long is that anyway.”

Asking support from Turkish basketball fans, Ömer said, “We have big goals, but there are things that cannot be overcome without the support of Turkish fans. I expect their support. I will represent Turkey in Miami. I am the first Turkish basketball player to play for the Miami Heat. I will give my due. This contract I signed is better than the last.” It’s a very good start for me. I hope there will be more to come.” made its assessment.
