2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Turkish guard took another step forward in his third season as a key contributor in Philly's rotation throughout the year. Korkmaz logged 21.7 minutes across 72 contests - both the most of his career. The increase in minutes led to a boost in production, and he averaged 9.8 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.0 triples, and 1.1 assists - all career highs. Korkmaz provided six games with at least 20 points, including two 30-point performances. He drained at least three triples in 27 games. Despite the solid season, it will be difficult for him to build on the performance this season. The additions of Danny Green, Seth Curry and Terrance Ferguson will likely cut into Korkmaz's playing time in 2020-21, and while he's proven to be a valuable contributor in the past, his limited time on the court will keep him off the fantasy radar in all but the deepest of leagues.

Past Season Summaries
2020

Korkmaz's fourth season with the 76ers was a success as the guard made improvements in plenty of aspects of his game, most importantly with his defense. The 23-year-old posted season averages of 9.1 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 0.9 steals. The guard hit an impressive 40.1 percent from the field, 73.2 percent from the free-throw line and 37.5 percent from beyond the three-point arc. Korkmaz played in 55 games and managed 15 starts with an average of 19.3 minutes. One of Korkmaz's best games of the season came on Feb. 23, where the guard matched a career-best seven rebounds to go along with 19 points and two assists in a win. Korkmaz's defense improved significantly from the year prior as he notched 37 games with at least one steal and 13 games with two or more steals. His best defensive performance was on April 10, where Korkmaz snagged a career-best five steals in 31 minutes against the Thunder. In the playoffs, Korkmaz stepped up his play and was able to average 7.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, 0.6 assists and 0.6 steals in 16.2 minutes. The guard set a playoff career-high 14 points against the Hawks in Game 3 as he made 3-of-6 from three-point range. Overall, Korkmaz finished fifth on his team in steals (0.9) which helped establish his role with the 76ers as a bench scorer who can play exceptional defense.

2019

Playing in his third NBA season, Korkmaz appeared in 72 games and made 12 starts -- both career-highs. In a career-best 21.7 minutes per game, Korkmaz established new career-highs in points (9.8 PPG) and rebounds (2.3 RPG) per game, as well as field-goal percentage (43.0%) and three-point percentage (40.2%). Korkmaz had his first 20-point game of the season against the Suns on Nov. 4, adding five rebounds and two assists in 34 minutes. He poured in a career-high 34 points against the Grizzlies on Feb. 7, hitting a career-high seven threes on nine attempts. He also crossed the 30-point threshold against the Bulls on Feb. 9, finishing with 31 points, five rebounds, two assists and three steals. In another win over Chicago on Jan. 17, Korkmaz hit six three-pointers on his way to 24 points in 32 minutes. Over an 11-game stretch from Feb. 1 through Feb. 27, Korkmaz posted 14.4 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists, while shooting 42.3 percent from beyond the arc. In the postseason, Korkmaz appeared in all four of the 76ers' first-round contests against the Celtics. In Game 2, Korkmaz posted three points, two assists, one rebound and one steal in 16 minutes.

2018

In his second NBA season, Korkmaz took on a larger role with the 76ers. After averaging 5.7 minutes over 14 games as a rookie, he was bumped to 14.1 minutes over 48 games during the 2018-19 campaign. Korkmaz also started seven contests. For the season, he averaged 5.8 points and 2.2 rebounds on 40.0 percent shooting. The 6-foot-7 guard had 12 double-digit scoring games, nine of which came during a strong 20-game stretch early in the season. From Nov. 28 to Jan. 9, Korkmaz averaged 8.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists. He may have grown even further in his role if not for a torn meniscus that cost him 23 games. Korkmaz scored 10 points in two games after returning from the injury. He also totaled 19 points over four postseason contests.

2017

Your prototypical draft-and-stash prospect, Korkmaz arrived on the scene in Philadelphia a little over a year after being selected No. 26 overall. The Turkish import got into 14 games for the Sixers. He made his NBA debut and hit his first career bucket in a loss to Golden State on Nov. 11. Korkmaz saw action in a stretch of four straight contests from Nov. 20 to 27. His season high in minutes (19:48) came in a tight loss to New Orleans on Dec. 10. In that game, Korkmaz tallied five points, three rebounds and an assist. He also hit his first NBA three-pointer. With Korkmaz just 19 years of age and playing his first NBA season in a new country, the Sixers were comfortable letting him watch and learn for most of his rookie campaign. Expect him to receive significantly more run moving forward. He has the size (6-foot-8) all teams covet in their guards.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
The 76ers picked Korkmaz as a late-first-round draft-and-stash prospect in 2016. Korkmaz is a 19-year-old shooting guard from Turkey – a country that has been a major source of international NBA talent for years. Korkmaz is 6-foot-8, but only weighs 185 pounds. He is a good rebounder for a shooting guard, but most of his potential comes from his jumpshot – he shot 46.6 percent from behind the international three-point line last season. He still needs to add strength and ball-handling skills, but he has potential to develop into an average or low-end NBA starter. Given the current state of his development, along with the deep talent pool ahead of him, he is unlikely to see much court time, and could be a candidate to spend some time in the G-League.
With their third pick of the first round in the 2016 NBA Draft, the 76ers decided to go the draft-and-stash route by selecting the 18-year-old Korkmaz, a shooting guard from Turkey. The nation has been a wellspring of international NBA talent for over a decade, but Korkmaz is one of the few guards from Turkey to emerge as a first-round talent. Though he had an up-and-down 2015-16 season with Anadolu Efes of the Turkish Basketball League, with whom he averaged 4.3 points over 11.5 minutes per game, the 6-foot-7 shooting guard still carries some promise, almost entirely due to his proficiency from downtown. At this point in his development, Korkmaz remains more of a catch-and-shoot threat than a player who can create his own shot, so his skills aren't likely to be optimized unless he's playing alongside a capable point guard. Korkmaz will need to add more strength and develop his handle in order to remain a long-term fixture in the league, but due to his lack of explosive athletic ability and defensive shortcomings, it doesn't appear the 6-foot-7 wing has much of a ceiling beyond that of an average NBA starter. Even so, his advanced shooting skills relative to most players his age at least provides him with a good foundation to work with, and that skill might ultimately be enough for him to carve out an Anthony Morrow-type career as sniper off the bench once he eventually arrives in North America.
