According to FIBA, Engin Atsür is on the preliminary roster of the 2009 Turkish Men’s Senior National Basketball Team for Eurobasket 2009. This is the qualifying tourney for the 2010 FIBA World championship, which will be held in Turkey. It is also the same tournament that, in 2006, saw Atsur guide Turkey to a 6th place finish.
This should come as no surprise, as Atsur was playing for Turkish National Teams even before he arrived in Raleigh for his freshman season. This season, Engin's stats have been nowhere to be found, however it is rumored that his heel problem that caused him so much trouble at NC State has resurfaced. We're not sure if he underwent surgery or has been simply rehabbing the heel, but his name on the Turkish National roster tells us that he must be on the mend.
We wish Engin the best, and will try to catch up with him in the near future.
