The Sixers selected Turkish shooting guard Furkan Korkmaz with the No. 26 pick of the 2016 NBA Draft.
Korkmaz played for the Turkish National Team and Anadolu Efes. He has some decent athleticism and he can shoot the rock, but his ability to get shots off at the NBA level and defensive deficiencies are going to be tough to get past. He might be a draft and stash guy but early reports indicate he has a shot of playing in the NBA this season. He lands in a good place for fantasy value but he has a ways to go before we’ll unleash any Dynasty owners in reasonably sized leagues.
Update: He will probably be stashed so that ends any fantasy discussion for now.
