The Sixers Furkan Korkmaz Era is over.
Korkmaz will join former NBA guards Tyler Ennis and Erick Green along with center Jan Vesely on the Fenerbahce roster. The team went 25-5 during the 2018-19 Euroleague regular season before being defeated in the Final Four.
Over two NBA seasons with the Sixers, Korkmaz played 62 games, averaging 4.9 points on 38.8 percent shooting. He shot 32.3 percent from beyond the arc. Prior to joining the Sixers, Korkmaz spent three seasons with Anadolu Efes.
In October, Korkmaz wanted to be traded over his lack of playing time, saying that he left his country to come and play for the Sixers and was disappointed in the lack of opportunity.
The Sixers declined Korkmaz’s option, so he’ll be a free agent on June 30.
Korkmaz got an increase in time after the Jimmy Butler trade, but faded out of the picture once Tobias Harris was brought in. Korkmaz has expressed that his priority is to stay in the NBA, per Eurohoops, but a recent report from Ajansspor Sports News says that the 21-year-old has agreed to a contract with Turkish basketball powerhouse, Fenerbahce.
