Furkan Korkmaz signed contract with turkish team Fenerbahce. per rotoworld 

Post#1 » by taj2133 » Mon Jun 24, 2019 5:17 pm

Former 76er Furkan Korkmaz has reportedly agreed to a contract with Turkish team Fenerbahce.
The 21-year-old shooter appeared in 41 games for the 76ers last season, averaging 5.8 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.0 triples on 40% from the field. He was considered a long shot to return to Philly, especially with the franchise adding Matisse Thybulle.

I liked his skill level. NBA was too physical for him, though. Too bad. I had hoped he'd be what Stauskas was'nt.

Kids still only 21. I can easily see him back in the NBA in a few years if he can improve his body.

Meh I was underwhelmed whenever he was on the court. I always got nervous when he’s get put in up 20 with 5 min left.

This gives me hope for this draft. I really wanted Kormaz in his draft, and we got him.... lol

Goodnight, sweet Turkish prince. I still think he's an NBA player and will eventually be back in the league.

He will definitely be back if he wants to be. Not quite ready to contribute regularly in the NBA. He's better off getting more playing time and a prominent role elsewhere. Hopefully Fenerbahce gives him that. He gets to go back to his hometown Istanbul. Wish him the best.

Could have been SL HOF and bring us a championship. Reminds me of Belinelli back then. He should come back once he gets old man body.

I cant forget how i saw him first time in person, then took picture with him. he looked like an anorexic model. Or maybe i was fat at that time haha

He’s back! At least he is under 30 and has only one way to go.

Well that wasn’t unexpected. As above, not a big fan but whatever 14th guy. Maybe he’ll prove me wrong. Got a couple of years in the system to build on.

I was disappointed when the Sixers didn't pick up his option, but now I understand why. I'm kind of surprised that no other team tried to sign him, but maybe it was all a ploy. Maybe Korkmaz told everyone he was going back to Turkey so no other team pursued him, but he had a wink-wink deal with Philly in place.

At any rate I still think he can turn into something. He has size and he has a quick release. If he can get some strength and get some confidence in his shooting, he could be a good role player in the future.

So, Furkan was the shooter that we are already familiar with that Elton was talking about?

I'm okay with the signing. And maybe with new assistant coaching, he'll develop
to his potential.

He just turned 22 today.

Sources state Elton was scouring the dark web for a shooter and stumbled across this. Never forget....

I figured it out. He is a basketball vampire. When he was on the bench he was actually sucking the basketball skill and soul from Fultz. Now that Fultz is gone. Korkmaz is ready unleash the skills he's absorbed from Fultz. Should be epic.
You want it to be one way....but it's the other way.
