Since arriving to the NBA in 2017, Furkan Korkmaz saw his role grow gradually every season.
The 26th pick of the 2016 NBA Draft appeared in just 14 games during his first year with the Philadelphia 76ers. He became a key member of the team since.
The 23-year-old shooting guard was asked when he realized that he belongs in the NBA. “I felt like I belong in the NBA after Portland game when I made that shot,” Korkmaz referred to his game-winner against the Portland Trail Blazers last season.
