Furkan 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.
Furkan Aldemir (foot) was released by the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
It's an interesting move by the Sixers considering Aldemir's contract was guaranteed for nearly $3 million this season. 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.
Furkan Aldemir (foot) sat out of Thursday's practice and will miss Friday's game against the Celtics, reports.
Aldemir is dealing with a case of plantar fasciitis, and though it was thought he might be closer to full health for the Philadelphia 76ers ' Friday game against the Celtics, it is looking now like his injury might keep him grounded for longer than expected.
Furkan Aldemir was a partial participant in Wednesday's practice due to a case of plantar fasciitis in his right foot, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The fact that Aldemir was able to see involvement in practice in some capacity suggests the injury isn't overly severe. It's expected that he'll be closer to full health in advance of the Sixers' final preseason contest Friday against the Celtics.
Furkan 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.
