There are quite a few talented young players in the NBA. Kevin Durant was asked about which young players he likes.

The first name that he mentioned was Alperen Sengun. According to Durant, the Turkish center has what it takes to be a good player in the NBA. He admitted a few months ago he didn’t even know who Sengun was.

“I would say I was going to give some love to Alperen Sengun,” KD said. “I like Sengun. He was dunking on a couple of people. I didn’t know he could get up like that. He’s nice. I like him. I think he’s going to be a good player. He’s going to be a nice player.”

This season Sengun is averaging 15.5 points, 8.9 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 28 minutes per game.
