Birkan BATUK - EuroBasket 2013 Profile
Team 2012-13: Anadolu Efes Istanbul (Turkey-TBL)
Career: Alpella Istanbul (Turkey-TBL, 2006-08); Trabzonspor (Turkey-TB2L, 2008-09); Pinar Karsiyaka (Turkey-TBL, 2009-12); Anadolu Efes Istanbul (Turkey-TBL, 2012-13)

After years of working his way through the Turkey youth national team ranks, Batuk finally made his debut with the senior side in the EuroBasket 2013 Qualification Round - albeit with just 16 scoreless minutes in two games. But the 23-year-old is part of Turkey's strong 1990 generation. The shooting guard has good scoring skills and is a weapon from beyond the three-point arc. Batuk has also shown he is ready to take on more responsibility. He played two seasons in EuroChallenge with Pinar Karsiyaka before moving to Euroleague side Anadolu Efes Istanbul, where he proved last year in his first campaign that he can contribute to a top-level club. If he makes the team for Slovenia, Batuk will benefit greatly from serving as a back-up to veterans like Sinan Guler and Omer Onan.
