-  19 YEAR OLD FURKAN KORKMAZ STUCK ON ANADOLU EFES BENCH BEHIND VETS

EJBB liked the pick by the Philadelphia 76ers to take Turkish SG Furkan Korkmaz with the 26th pick of the First Round in the 2016 NBA draft, as EJBB had him listed as 3rd best Euro in Pre-Draft Top 14 List, but Korkmaz went back to his team in Turkey Anadolu Efes this season, because of the buy-out money in his Turkish contract, and with new coach Velimir Perasovic taking over a team that lost in the TBL Finals the past two seasons, minutes for the 19 year old SG Korkmaz, are tough to find, as Perasovic is trying to win the TBL title and is going with veteran grown men at the guard spots, with French 27 year old PG Thomas Heurtel, 24 year old PG Bryce Cotton, 27 year old SG Jayson Granger, and Cavs second round 21 year old SG pick Cedi Osman. In Europe if a coach loses three or four games in a row, they tend to get FIRED if say the third or fourth loss is to say rival and defending TBL champion Fenerbahce.

Korkmaz has a Brent Barry type of lean body and can stroke the deep 3 and will help the 76ers in a few years, when his body fills out more and he will come to the 76ers next season, but EJBB says Korkmaz would be better off this year getting 35 minutes of run in the NBA D-League, instead of stuck on the Anadolu Efes bench just watching vets play ahead of him. Anadolu Efes probably will not loan him to another team to get more minutes this season, because they know he will bolt for the NBA next year, but if a GOOD offer comes to them, Anadolu Efes might send him to another Turkish League team, because so far in Euroleague play, Korkmaz has been a DNP for every game except just two games.    For now though coach Perasovic will go with his vets in Euroleague and Turkish league play, because he knows young players make mistakes and get coaches FIRED QUICK in Europe.
