Mükremin Deniz Kılıçlı (born October 23, 1990) is a Turkish basketball player.

Collegiate career

Freshman season

Kılıçlı has come to West Virginia University as a highly touted recruit with much acclaim. Kılıçlı is considered by many to be the next great power forward to come from Turkey. A UCLA Bruins assistant coach said, "He is more skilled than Kevin Love." and added "They’re different type players, but he is more skilled than Kevin."[1]

After missing the first 20 games of the season because of a suspension delivered by NCAA for playing on a team in his native country that included a professional player, Kılıçlı made his Mountaineers debut in February 2010, and helped make an immediate impact.[2]
