Korkmaz agreed Wednesday to re-sign with the 76ers on a two-year contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The former 26th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, Korkmaz has struggled to carve out a steady role with the 76ers, though it appears the organization remains intrigued by his upside, despite choosing to decline his third-year option last fall. He appeared in 48 games for Philly last season, averaging 5.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 14.2 minutes. The Sixers are heading into the 2019-20 campaign without a ton of wing depth, however, making it possible that Korkmaz will earn extra opportunities in his age-22 season.
Korkmaz totaled five points (1-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, and three assists in 12 minutes during Saturday's 108-95 Game 1 loss to the Raptors.
Korkmaz has earned exactly 12 minutes in consecutive tilts. With Mike Scott (heel) out, Korkmaz has been among the reserves 76ers coach Brett Brown has called upon to play extended minutes lately. With Scott likely to be listed as questionable in advance of Monday's Game 2, Korkmaz could be in line to earn double-digit minutes for the fourth time in five appearances this postseason.
Korkmaz will start Wednesday's contest against the Bulls, Paul Hudrick of NBCS Philadelphia reports.
Korkmaz, with the 76ers' key players sitting out during the regular-season finale, will make his seventh start of the season. Across his prior nods, he's averaged 12.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.0 steal in 28.7 minutes.
Korkmaz (knee) will be available for Tuesday's game against the Heat, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philly reports.
A torn MCL has shelved Korkmaz since mid-February, but he'll get a chance to return to action Tuesday in the Sixers' penultimate regular season contest. Looking ahead to the postseason, it's unclear if Korkmaz will be a regular in the rotation, but assuming his knee holds up, he could see extended minutes Tuesday and Wednesday with Philly likely to rest several key players.
Korkmaz (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Miami.
Korkmaz has missed nearly two months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn MCL, but his recovery has evidently progressed at a quick pace. If he is cleared to play Tuesday, the Sixers figure to keep a close eye on his minutes in his first game back.
Korkmaz (knee) underwent successful surgery Tuesday and will be re-evaluated in four weeks.
Korkmaz tore his MCL during the Sixers' matchup against the Celtics on Feb. 12. At best, it seems like Korkmaz could be back on the floor in late March, though it also wouldn't be surprising if he was held out until the playoffs. Either way, the loss continues to be a meaningful blow to Philly, who sacrificed depth to acquire both Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris.
Korkmaz has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus in his right knee, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
The injury occurred during the matchup against Boston on Feb. 12. Treatment options, including surgery, are being considered. Either way, Korkmaz will be out for an extended period of time, making the 76ers' bench thinner than it already was after the trade deadline.
Korkmaz (knee) was inactive Wednesday for the 76ers' 126-111 win over the Knicks.
Listed as questionable heading into the game with the sore right knee, Korkmaz was ultimately ruled out shortly after pregame warmups. He'll have a full week to heal up from the injury with the 76ers not scheduled to play again until Feb. 21 versus the Heat.
Korkmaz is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Knicks due to right knee soreness.
Korkmaz played 11 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Celtics, and it appears he picked up an injury along the way. If he's ruled out Wednesday, it could mean more time for the likes of Jonathon Simmons and James Ennis.
Korkmaz played only nine minutes in Sunday's 108-105 win over the Knicks. He missed his lone shot attempt and accrued no other statistics.
As expected, Korkmaz's playing time and production have tailed off dramatically over the past two contests while Jimmy Butler and J.J. Redick have both returned from recent two-game absences. With averages of 12.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 2.3 three-pointers and 1.0 steal in 28.7 minutes per game over six starts this season, Korkmaz has some appeal in DFS contests and a short-term streamer when either of the 76ers' top two wings are sitting out. Aside from those instances, however, Korkmaz offers little fantasy upside as a borderline rotation option for coach Brett Brown.
Korkmaz dropped 16 points (5-10 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and tallied five rebounds along with two assists and two steals across 26 minutes Wednesday against the Wizards.
Korkmaz received another opportunity to enter the starting lineup with J.J. Redick still out due to back stiffness. Korkmaz's time with the first unit figures to come to an end soon, however, at which point he'll lose valuable playing time. He's received four consecutive starts, although prior to that, he was averaging 7.1 points and 2.9 rebounds in 16.3 minutes across his last seven games off the bench.
Korkmaz supplied 16 points (5-9 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four assists and two rebounds across 24 minutes during Tuesday's win over Philadelphia.
Korkmaz made his third-straight start, and produced an efficient 16 points in place of J.J. Reddick. The second-year Turkis pro has had his share of impressive moments this year, but continues to struggle with a streaky shot -- Tuesday notwithstanding. His splits of 38.8 percent from the field and 30.6 percent from three as well as his limited role prohibit him from being considered a viable asset in standard formats.
Korkmaz will start Tuesday against the Wizards, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
With J.J. Redick (back) unavailable, Korkmaz will pick up his fifth start of the season -- and third straight. Over his last two starts, the youngster is averaging 8.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists across 29.0 minutes.
Korkmaz had seven points (2-8 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, and four assists in 28 minutes during Saturday's 106-100 win over the Mavericks.
Korkmaz earned a second straight start with Jimmy Butler (illness) sidelined. The sophomore shooting guard is a legitimate threat from beyond the arc, which helps his case for minutes given that the team often lacks sufficient spacing to effectively complement center Joel Embiid and point forward Ben Simmons. Still, coach Brett Brown has been reluctant to rely on Korkmaz when the team is at full strength, thus limiting his value to deeper leagues.

Korkmaz will start in place of Jimmy Butler, who's missing a second-straight game due to illness. He scored 10 points and supplied four rebounds, three assists and a steal Wednesday against the Suns, and can be expected to see a similar dosage of minutes.
Korkmaz generated 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-7 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 132-127 win over the Suns.
Korkmaz drew the start in place of Jimmy Butler (illness) and filled up the stat sheet, scoring in double figures for the second time in the last three games and the ninth time through 31 appearances. The 21-year-old shooting guard can fill it up offensively, but more often than not he is relegated to a relatively modest reserve role.
Korkmaz will draw the start in Wednesday's game against the Suns.
Kormaz is moving into the starting five for the injured Jimmy Butler, who is out with an upper respiratory infection. It's unclear if Butler's illness will force him to miss any more time, and if he does, Korkmaz will likely continue to start in his place. In joining the starting five, Korkmaz could be in line for a larger role.
Korkmaz collected 10 points (3-12 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, and three steals in 22 minutes during Sunday's 129-95 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Korkmaz earned at least 20 minutes for the first time since Dec. 16. He has reached double figures in scoring eight times through 29 appearances this season, and this was also the third time in the last nine games that Korkmaz has swiped three steals.
Korkmaz generated 18 points (8-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt), six assists, three rebounds, three assists and three steals in 34 minutes Wednesday against Brooklyn.
The Turkish guard reached 18 points for the second-straight game, and played a season-high 34 minutes while starting in place of Jimmy Butler (groin). Korkmaz has been productive when he's seen the court, scoring in double-figures in all six games he's played 20 minutes. That said, his season average of 12.0 minutes is far too low for Korkmaz to be considered a relevant fantasy option beyond DFS at this point in his career.
Korkmaz is starting Wednesday against the Nets, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
With Jimmy Butler (groin) out, the 76ers are thin on the wing. As a result, Korkmaz will join the starters. During Monday's game against Detroit, Korkmaz posted 18 points, seven boards, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes and makes for a low-cost flier in DFS.
