Korkmaz collected 12 points (4-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 23 minutes during Saturday's 112-106 overtime loss to the Grizzlies.
Korkmaz stepped up in this his first opportunity to play double-digit minutes, finishing with career highs in scoring, rebounding, assists, steals, and made threes. With Jimmy Butler yet to join the rotation and Wilson Chandler (rest) sitting out, Korkmaz made the most of every extra second spent on the court, though it remains to be seen whether this is a sign of things to come for the sophomore.
After seeing limited playing time as a rookie last season, Korkmaz was angling for a larger role in 2018-19, but that hasn't materialized through the 76ers' first eight contests. The swingman has seen the floor in just five of those games and has played no more than eight minutes on any occasion while rookie first-round pick Landry Shamet has seemingly leapfrogged him on the depth chart. The eventual returns of Jerryd Bayless (knee) and Wilson Chandler (hamstring) will further block Korkmaz's path to minutes, making it understandable that the team wasn't willing to commit to retaining the 21-year-old for the third year of his rookie deal. Korkmaz will become an unrestricted free agent July 1 and could be traded later this season to a rebuilding team that might want to evaluate him more closely before he hits the open market this summer.
Korkmaz tallied seven points (3-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt), and seven rebounds in 12 minutes during Friday's 104-84 preseason victory over Melbourne United.
Korkmaz played 12 minutes off the bench Friday as he looked to continue his strong summer league form from two months prior. He once again showed that he is not afraid to shoot the ball and will certainly not pass up an opportunity. He is no certainty to garner himself a regular rotation spot but he will likely be given ample opportunity over the next two weeks. He is not worth drafting at this stage and should only be monitored in deeper formats.
Korkmaz had 18 points (7-17 FG, 4-9 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists and one block in 23 minutes during Sunday's 82-73 summer league loss to Memphis.
Korkmaz rounded off his summer league campaign with another nice scoring effort. After erupting with 40 points in the opener, he has seen his scoring fluctuate but on the whole, appear a real strength of his game. He is certainly in the running for a regular roster spot but will need to work on some other areas of his game if he is to ever put up any real fantasy value.
Korkmaz posted 19 points (6-19 FG.2-5 3Pt, four rebounds, two steals and an assist across 25 minutes in Saturday's 91-89 Las Vegas Summer League second-round win over the Bucks.
Korkmaz's summer has been a bit up-and-down but the highlight would have to be the 40-point explosion he had against the Celtics. The 2017 first-round picks failed to see much action last season, but with Marco Belinelli's departure, there may be more opportunity in Philly's offensive scheme.
