Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Omer Faruk Yurtseven was born on June 19, 1998 in Istanbul, Turkey. Yurtseven began playing competitive basketball at a young age, competing for the Turkish national team in the 2013 and 2014 FIBA Europe U16 Championship. He was also a silver medalist for Turkey in the 2015 FIBA Europe U18 Championship. In 2016, Yurtseven competed in the FIBA Europe U20 Championship, winning a bronze medal and making the All-Tournament team. In 2015, Yurtseven made his EuroLeague debut for Fenerbahce, and later that year he participated in an NBA preseason game against the Brooklyn Nets. At age 17, Yurtseven became the youngest player to participate in an NBA preseason contest. Yurseven committed to play collegiately at North Carolina State, but due to his previous professional status, he had to sit out the first nine games of the season, as well as donate $1,000 to charity. Yurtseven made his college basketball debut on December 15, 2016 in an NC State victory over Appalachian State. He went on to appear in 22 games, making 14 starts and averaging 5.9 points and 4.4 rebounds in 18.9 minutes. As a sophomore, Yurtseven appeared in 33 games, posting 13.5 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game. Yurtseven earned All-ACC Third Team honors and opted to test the waters in advance of the 2018 NBA Draft. Ultimately, Yurtseven decided to return to college basketball, but he announced that he would transfer to Georgetown. After sitting out the entirety of the 2018-19 season, Yurtseven started 25 of 26 games for the Hoyas, posting 15.5 points, 9.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.5 blocks in 27.3 minutes per contest.

Falls out of rotation
CMiami Heat
January 18, 2022
Yurtseven (coach's decision) went unused off the bench Monday in the Heat's 104-99 loss to the Raptors.
ANALYSIS
The return of Bam Adebayo (thumb) from a six-week absence was always expected to hurt Yurtseven, but head coach Erik Spoelstra's decision to drop the rookie from the rotation entirely was surprising. Rather than rolling with Yurtseven as the backup center to Adebayo, Spoelstra turned to Dewayne Dedmon (eight points, nine rebounds and three blocks in 16 minutes) to handle that role. Even though Yurtseven had turned in impressive averages of 11.6 points, 13.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.6 blocks over the past 14 games, he looks like a clear drop in 12- and 14-team leagues now that Adebayo is back in action.
