Former Arizona Guard Josiah Turner Will Play Professionally in Hungary

+Read full article

At 6-foot-3, California-native Josiah Turner was originally among one of the top prospects within the class of 2011.

However, after a tumultuous freshman season at Arizona, which included numerous suspensions, Turner made the decision to leave the university and transfer.

This past spring news emerged that Turner was ready to begin a new chapter of his career at SMU, joining recently hired head coach Larry Brown.

Yet that also fell through when reports surfaced that Turner would instead spurn his transfer to SMU and simply turn pro. Potential destinations for the one-time top-20 recruit, included the NBA’s D-League and obviously a potential stint overseas.

On Tuesday, Yahoo Sports!‘s Jeff Eisenberg tweeted that Turner had found a professional team and was headed to Hungary for this upcoming season: [blackbirdpie url=”https://twitter.com/JeffEisenberg/status/238025246400188416″]

 

While the move for Turner could certainly have its benefits, nobody can predict how things will eventually turn out.

Turner had a very high ceiling coming out of high school, but problems surfaced at Arizona that he might never bounce back from. More than likely, Turner’s eventual goal is to make it to the NBA, however only time will tell if that is even plausible anymore.

One thing remains certain for the talented point guard, he will have money now, so it may simply come down to the choices that he makes that will determine his future.
