After it was announced that he will enter the 2017 NBA Draft, the Turkish young star of Galatasaray Ege Ar talked to Eurohoops about this highly important decision of his career and how he feels with the prospect of being picked by an NBA team.

“It’s so exciting for me to enter the NBA Draft,” he said.“This season I am having better year individually with Galatasaray jersey. Obviously playing in Pertevniyal (in Turkish 2nd division) with double licence has a big effect on this. After this improvement on my performance, I have decided to make this choice.”

“Of course it’s not certain that i am going to be drafted this year. But there is still time for the draft and me, my family and my agent are going to make steps for future progress”, added the 20-year-old power forward.

There’s a lot of room for improvement of course and Arar is well aware of two specific things that he needs to extra develop. “My athleticism and long range shooting,” he told Eurohoops.

Arar has played in nine EuroLeague games this season with Galatasaray. He averages 2.4 points and 3 rebounds in 11 minutes per match. Check out his highlights.
