After a year in Latvia, former Arizona Wildcats forward Ryan Luther will continue his professional career in Turkey. The former Arizona Wildcats forward has agreed to a deal with Darussafaka, according to Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.

Darussafaka plays in the Basketball Super League, the top league in Turkey. They were 13-10 before the coronavirus crisis canceled the remainder of the 2019-20 season.

After one season as a grad transfer at Arizona, Luther spent his rookie season as a professional with BK Ventspils, where the 24-year-old averaged 10.9 points and 7.8 rebounds per game while shooting 44 percent from 3.

In 32 games (20 starts) with the Wildcats, Luther averaged 8.4 points and 4.3 rebounds per game while shooting 44 percent from the field and 38 percent from 3.

He began his college career at Pittsburgh.

Luther will also play in The Basketball Tournament this summer as a member of Herd That, a team that primarily features former Marshall players. That 24-team, single elimination tournament begins on July 4 and runs through July 14. The winning team claims a $1 million prize.
