$Signed a two-year, $3.38 million contract with the 76ers in July of 2019.
Struggles with shot in start
GPhiladelphia 76ers
October 18, 2019
Korkmaz totaled five points (2-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block in 21 minutes during Friday's 112-93 loss to the Wizards.
Korkmaz drew the start, replacing Ben Simmons (back) for the preseason finale. Korkmaz has been more involved here in the early going than he was last year, perhaps in hopes that he can help fill some of the shooting void left by the offseason departure of J.J. Redick. Those shoes will be difficult to fill, but on a team whose two primary options (Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons) are better inside than out, perimeter shooting could be a crucial skill that Brett Brown will prioritize from his role players.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
