Sixers Furkan Korkmaz Showing an Expanded Game at FIBA World Cup
Sixers guard Furkan Korkmaz is putting on quite a show a the FIBA Basketball World Cup, representing his native Turkey. While Korkmaz is known more for his three-point shot, he appears to have worked on his game this summer.
The Turkish guard looked very athletic, adding the ability to put the ball on the floor, get by his man and finish.
Check out his new-look game:
The 21-year-old appeared in 41 games for the 76ers last season, averaging 5.8 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.0 triples on 40% from the field.
Perhaps by expanding his game, Korkmaz can land in the Sixers rotation this season on a team still searching for more three-point shooting. He currently appears to be behind Josh Richardson and Zhaire Smith at the two-guard position, but adding some layers to his game could help get him more time.
