Last season, the 29-year-old Andrews became the primary scorer of EuroCup sensation Frutti Extra Bursaspor. He averaged 14.1 points, 2.6 rebounds, 4.2 assists, and 14.7 PIR over 20 EuroCup games. In the Turkish league, he averaged 14.4 points on 47.2% three-point shooting percentage, 3.3 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game.

Andrews navigated the Turkish squad to the grand final but Bursa had to bow down against Virtus Bologna. Andrews arrived in Bursaspor in October 2021 after an uneventful stint with Turk Telekom Ankara.

In the 2020-2021 season, he played in Darussafaka with 16.1 points, 3.4 assists and 3.1 rebounds in the Turkish league.

Andrews was born on May 25, 1993 in Portland, USA, and he's playing in both guard positions. He played college basketball at the University of Washington and in his graduation season (2015-2016) averaged 20.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 4.9 assists.

In December 2016 he moved to Europe on behalf of Turkish best Balıkesir and in 19 games he averaged 14.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists. In the 2017-2018 season he joined the Delaware 87ers, the Philadelphia 76ers' affiliate team.

In November 2018, he signed with Latvian VEF Rīga and VTB averaged 8.8 points, 3.3 assists and 2.8 rebounds. He finished the season in Israel's Hapoel Afula with 26.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 1.7 steals per game.

In July 2019, he returned to Turkey on behalf of Buyukcekmece and in 16 games had 19.9 points, 4.5 assists and 3.6 rebounds on average. He ended the 2019-2020 season at Israeli Maccabi Haifa with a tally of 13.4 points, 2.6 assists and 2.3 rebounds in 7 games.

The 1.88-meter combo guard established his name in Europe while playing for Darussafaka Istanbul throughout the 2020-21 campaign.

At that time, he averaged 16.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 3.5 assists in the Turkish League and posted 18.2 points (47.6% 2PT, 62.5% 3PT), 3.4 rebounds, and 3.8 assists in the Basketball Champions League.

After going undrafted in the 2016 NBA Draft, Andrews played professional basketball in the USA (G League), Turkey, Latvia, and Israel.
