Everybody wants Karnowski

According to spanish portal Gazeta Pomorska, Premyslaw Karnowski(2.11-C) is one of the most sought after young players in Europe. Karnowsky played for National Team of Poland in Kaunas for the U-16 European Championship. The young center attracted offers from 8 of the biggest teams in Europe according to the article, coming from Spain, Italy, Greece and France. He averaged 10 points 7.7 rebounds 1.6 assists and 1.4 blocks in 9 games for Poland helping his team finish 4th in the Eurobasket.

Some of the teams that have been mentioned are Barcelona, Malaga, Saski Baskonia and Panathinaikos from Greece. The father of the player is going to take the decision and he wants the best future in mind for his son. The offers from Europe are lucrative and they offer good money, housing and education but they don't offer him a spot in the first team. That would be quite unfeasible for such a young player.

The options of the NCAA was also considered but the parents of Karnowski have yet to receive an offer from a college but they would be quite keen to explore that possibility. The entrance to the NCAA would open all sorts of door for Karnowski if he were to play in the NBA. Another option is to stay in Poland and finish his education there while playing for one of the teams in Poland like Anwil Włocławek or Trefl Gdynia. Whatever happens, the adventure of Premyslaw Karnowski in the world of basketball has already begun.
