Furkan Korkmaz scores 27 points in Delaware 87ers return
Furkan Korkmaz made quick work of his return to the floor as a member of the Sevens, as he posted 27 points, eight rebounds, and four assists in the Delaware 87ers' 119-111 loss to the Wisconsin Herd on Tuesday night in NBA G-League action.
Not only did Korkmaz utilize his traditional outside shot, he also found himself getting quality looks in the paint as well.

Korkmaz has been in limbo as a two-way player between Delaware and the Sixers for the last month or so.
When Markelle Fultz went down with a shoulder injury, he popped right back up from the Sevens to Philadelphia, and then was later sent back down. Because of the latest injury to Justin Anderson, Korkmaz was brought back up for shooting guard relief. Jerryd Bayless was recently re-activated by the Sixers, so Korkmaz's chances to play, even off the bench is significantly slim.
There really isn't a better place for Korkmaz to play right now than Delaware, and his recent quality play is showing how much he is learning by playing on the Sixers' G-League team.
It seems, though, that the Sixers will continue to move around Korkmaz depending on their injury situation, in the near future.
It would probably benefit him to stay on one team for a prolonged amount of time to continue to get into a groove and keep momentum.
