Furkan Korkmaz shot well during the World Cup in China and "looked like an NBA player" according to Sixers beat writer Rich Hofmann of The Athletic.
Korkmaz has been something of a disappointment in his career so far. Despite considering himself a sniper, he has made just 32 percent of 3-pointers in his NBA career. However, the Sixers decided to bring him back in July and he scored 14 points per game at the World Cup, including 43 percent on 3-pointers. Korkmaz averaged just 14 minutes per game last season, but this tournament showing could be a small step forward for him.
