This move actually makes since. Hopefully he comes to camp with some extra muscle and a renewed confidence in his shot..

Thank goodness. I cannot remember the last Furkan-less season.

He is technically tied with Ben for being the 2nd longest tenured Sixer.

Always having a furkan on your roster is a key tenet to the process. Hinkie would’ve mentioned it in his concluding manifesto but there was no need, as it was so obvious to even the most novice observer.

Twenty-one year old Furkan > geriatric Kyle Korver.

Dat dunk in the halfcourt. Korkmaz is a defensive zero, but ridiculously underrated as an on-ball talent.

What makes you say he’s underrated on the ball? I’m rooting for the guy, but it’s one thing to throw it down off the dribble in Europe, and another to do it at the nba level—where he’s had plenty of opportunity, and showed zero ability. He’s not athletic enough to be effective at the point of attack. An improved shot is the only thing that could land him in the rotation.

It could happen. But I wouldn’t bet on it.

Korkmaz has some risky passes that are exciting. He has some play making skills, but his lack of strength and health has been disappointing.

Working with Redick, Bellinelli, and others was priceless. Another year of improvement would be great for him.

Would love to see Korkmaz do anything with relative consistency and be a 10 minute a game guy but I really doubt it.
Who knows maybe he will gain some strength and be a factor.

He looks to be a bit stronger than before. Consistent shot and gaining strength without losing quickness are really the x-factors for him. Excited to see him at the WC
