FIBA World Championship Preview: Group C, Part Two
August 16, 2006

Erdogan is a 6-3, 28-year old shooting guard, who truly emerged on the European scene just two seasons ago by scoring 16.7 points per game in the Euroleague for Ulker Istanbul. After this prominent season, he moved to Spanish powerhouse Tau Ceramica, where he become an important part of the club’s success, averaging 10.6 points and 2.0 rebounds in the last Euroleague campaign.

Erdogan has a nice all-around game, with shooting being the best part of the package, although he shot only 28.9% from downtown in his last Euroleague campaign (compared with 44.2% the year before). Serkan is also a very good ball-handler, even handling some point guard duties when Pablo Prigioni or Roko-Leni Ukic were out with injuries this past season. He can slash all the way to the hoop, but prefers to stop and elevate for a mid-range jumper, which he nails with good accuracy. He also brings above average passing skills and a high basketball IQ.

Serkan is undersized for a shooting guard, being only 6-3 and without the athletic ability to make up for it. Erdogan is a decent athlete by European standards, but nothing exceptional, with his leaping ability being poor and noticeably lacking an explosive first step.
