Tofas adds high-flying forward Owens
Tofas Bursa kept getting ready for its 7DAYS EuroCup debut next season by inking power forward Josh Owens on Saturday. Owens (2.06 meters, 28 years old) arrives from Pinar Karsiyaka Izmir, where he averaged 11.2 points on 70.8% two-point shooting, six rebounds and a block in 29 Turkish League games last season. He started the 2016-17 season with AEK Athens, but only played one game with the Greek powerhouse before joining Karsiyaka. Owens started his professional basketball career with Idaho of the D-League and also played for Hapoel Tel Aviv of Israel, as well as for Dolomiti Energia Trento and Umana Reyer Venice of Italy. He has some EuroCup experience, as Owens averaged 9.7 points and 5.3 rebounds in 16 games with Venice in the 2015-16 season.
