Owens caught our eye on one of our European scouting trips last season playing for Red Star Belgrade. It seemed like he was playing much smarter and more under control basketball than we had remembered from him. He’s always been known for his work ethic and defensive ability, but he seemed to have made strides with his perimeter shooting and decision making skills, likely in no small part due to the guidance of ball-busting and extremely old-school Serbian coaching legend Svetislav Pesic.

Unfortunately Owens doesn’t seem to be playing particularly well to start off the year after moving to Turk Telekom of Turkey. The fact that he has a Bulgarian passport now might make it even more difficult for him to decide to return to the NBA. Otherwise, NBA teams could probably do a lot worse with a minimum contract. He’s a free agent this summer.

Ex-NBAer Andre Owens was likely the most important player on Red Star. He showed a great first step and a much improved jumper from beyond the arc (knocking down 3 of his 6 attempts), looking extremely intense on defense and very focused and under control on offense. He ran into the buzzsaw known as Justin Hamilton (arguably the best defensive guard in Europe) in extended stretches, which definitely cooled him off, but made some clutch shots in the 3rd and 4th quarter and ended up having a very nice game. His value to Coach Pesic becomes incredibly evident when you look down at the boxscore and realize that he didn’t even manage to get him four minutes of rest in this game. The people in Red Star say very good things about him, and it wouldn’t be shocking at all to see him in a much bigger European club next season:
