Austin Wiley is having a remarkable season with TOFAŞ in both the Basketball Champions League (BCL) and in the Turkish Basketball Super League (BSL), preparing him for the next level.

After his college years with the Auburn Tigers, Austin Wiley made rapid strides in his career, quickly moving from the Pro-A League in Germany to the Lithuanian League and then to the Turkish Basketball Super League, one of the most competitive leagues in Europe.

Dominating the stage as the leading rebounder in both the Basketball Champions League and the Turkish League, he’s also a force to be reckoned with in blocking shots. In addition to his defensive skills, his versatility on the court stands out. Whether blocking opponents or setting solid screens, he consistently contributes to his team’s success. Especially noteworthy is his remarkable efficiency in executing pick-and-roll plays, highlighting his significant offensive impact on the game.

After his outstanding performance in the Basketball Champions League this season, it’s clear that he’s on the fast track to the next level. This season, it has been interesting to see how smoothly two big men, Daniel Oturu and Moses Wright, made the transition from the Turkish Basketball Super League to the EuroLeague. Looking at the rapid progress Wiley has made so far in his career, climbing the ranks quickly, especially since he’s also a big man like Oturu and Wright, and playing in the same competitive league, it wouldn’t be surprising to see teams roll up their sleeves and get to work on bringing him on board.
