2020-21 Philadelphia 76ers Guy to Watch: Furkan Korkmaz

Furkan Korkmaz is fun to say, and fun to watch. With the overhauled Sixers attack, someone like Korkmaz will be looked at as a quick catch-and-shoot option in transition. There are plenty of glamor names on the Sixers, and adding Danny Green takes away Furkan’s specialized gift. Still, Doc Rivers will find opportunities for the kid. He has improved considerably from year to year, and as a defined role player off the bench, he’s going to open the floor for a second unit anchored by the annually rejuvenated Dwight Howard. You’re going to see a LOT of Sixers basketball this season, probably late into the summer, so get used to an unsung name that might shoot his way into the collective consciousness.
