Olu Famutimi

Canadian/Nigerian guard Olumuyiwa Famutimi has been doing this for a while, with training camp experience dating back to 2005. He has also had a couple of training camp contracts in his time, with the Sixers in 2005 and the Spurs in 2006. Last year in Turkey, Famutimi averaged 16.9ppg, 5.6rpg, 2.0apg and 1.9spg for Bura, shooting 44% from the field. He's also added a jumpshot to his game; formerly his biggest weakness, Olu took five three pointers per game last season, and hit them at a 44% clip. The 6'5 rebounding/defending guard was a good three point shooter in college, but demonstrated no three point range in his two years of D-League experience. If he can keep up that 44% lark, good times await the former Ukrainian league all-star.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 20

- Olu Famutimi

For a few years there, Nigerian-Canadian cut-and-shut job Famutimi was on the cusp of the NBA. He signed back-to-back training camp contracts, with the Sixers in 2005 and the Spurs in 2006, and was once touted as being the first player to go straight from a Canadian high school to the first round of the NBA draft. (This didn't happen, though. Obviously.) Now well into a European career, Famutimi is signed in Turkey and averaging 16.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game for Oyak Renault Bursa. That's easily the best offensive season of his career, and shooting 41% from three point range is a large part of that (and a big improvement from a man who went 6-29 from there in 92 D-League games.)
