Josiah Turner's basketball career will stop next in Hungary.

The former UA guard signed a deal with Albacomp and is scheduled to arrive there this week, according to Eurobasket.

After switching high schools as a senior, Turner played a tumultuous year for the Wildcats, was arrested on suspicion of extreme DUI in the spring and announced he was transferring to SMU. He later opted not to transfer and pursue professional options, and now he has one.

Turner chatted with former teammates Kevin Parrom and Dondre Wise via Twitter about the move.

Turner's DUI case, BTW, will resume on Sept. 18 in Pima County Justice Court. His attorney, Jeffrey Rogers, said he is in negotiations for a plea agreement.


Lorenzo Romar plans to scrap Washington's motion offense in favor of the high-post offense, and he's using the Huskies' 10 pre-exhibition practices and UW's upcoming foreign trip to install it.

(Some of you have already discussed this on the previous discussion thread.)
