Sixers’ Furkan Korkmaz plays well, but Turkey eliminated from EuroBasket

The Philadelphia 76ers will convene for training camp in Charleston, South Carolina, on Sept. 27 for the 2022-23 season. That means now is the time for players to get their final workouts in before joining their team.

Sixers veteran Furkan Korkmaz had been competing in EuroBasket 2022 for his native Turkey, and the veteran had a wild time in the tournament. He was ejected from a game, which led to an altercation in the tunnel, and he had some up and down performances.

On Saturday, Korkmaz finished well. He scored 18 points on 4-for-12 shooting and knocked down eight of his nine free throws. However, Turkey fell to France in overtime, 87-86, and was eliminated.

The next step for Korkmaz is to prepare for the upcoming season. The Sixers added a number players to their bench in hopes of competing for a championship, and Korkmaz will need to compete for minutes.
