This season he started 18 games for Fenerbahce and has averaged 3.1 points on 63.6% shooting and 2.2 rebounds in 11:00 minutes per game. Duverioglu began his career in Jordan and won the 2013 and 2014 Jordanian championship with ASU Amman. He then played for both Pertevniyal and Anadolu Efes Istanbul in Turkey before signing with Fenerbahce in 2016. He has won a pair of Turkish League crowns and one Turkish Cup since joining Fenerbahce. Duverioglu is ranked third on the EuroLeague's all-time charts in field goal shooting at 68.6%.
