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.

  2. Furkan Korkmaz 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    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.
