A midseason change of scenery for Kyle Allman Jr. was confirmed officially by the club hours after the initial report.

Allman, 26, officially moved from Darussafaka Lassa to Besiktas Emlakjet as revealed by BjkBasket and confirmed by Eurohoops sources. He reached an agreement to sign a contract for the remainder of the 2023-24 season with an option for the 2024-25 season.

Moving his talents to Turkiye in late June, the former Cal State Fullerton standout landed with fellow Istanbul outfit Darussafaka Lassa.

Averaging 14.0 points and 4.0 rebounds per contest, his efforts have pushed Dacka to a 2-2 W-L tally in Group C of the Basketball Champions League Regular Season. Adding 13.0 points per game in the Turkiye Sigorta Basketbol Super Ligi painted the picture of his performance at the domestic level and contributions to a 6-4 record for the team coached by Yakup Sekizkok.

On the way to joining Besiktas and head coach Dusan Alimpijevic, the next stop will be returning to the BKT EuroCup, following a productive campaign with Paris in the 2022-23 edition of Euroleague Basketball’s second-tier club continental competition. The Black Eagles sit third in Group A of the Regular Season behind six wins in nine games and hold a 7-3 record in the BSL.

Moving his talents to Europe, Allman started his professional career in Greece as a leading player for Lavrio Megabolt. The sophomore campaign was based in Latvia with VEF Riga, before spending the next two years in Paris and going to Istanbul last summer.
