      Furkan Aldemir: Set to sign four-year deal with Turkish team

      Aldemir is in the process of finalizing a four-year contract with Turkish club Darussafaka, David Pick of Basketball Insiders reports. Aldemir was one of the Sixers' final cuts in training camp in October, and after failing to attract any interest from other NBA teams before opening night, it appears he's content to return to his home country rather than pursue an opportunity in the D-League. The former second-round pick averaged 2.3 points and 4.3 rebounds in 13.2 minutes per game with Philadelphia in 2014-15.

      76ers' Furkan Aldemir: Released by Sixers

      Aldemir (foot) was released by the 76ers on Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

However, they'll move on from the Turkish big man, who appeared in 41 games, making nine starts, last season. With Aldemir out of the picture, Christian Wood will make the team's final, 15-man roster.

      76ers' Furkan Aldemir: Dealing with an undisclosed injury

      Aldemir received treatment Tuesday for an undisclosed injury, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports. Aldemir was still able to take part in some shooting drills Tuesday, and at this time, it's expected that he'll be available off the bench for Friday's preseason tilt with the Wizards. The 6-foot-9 forward from Turkey will need a strong showing in the Sixers' remaining exhibition contests in order to stave off undrafted rookie Christian Wood for a roster spot.
