Coach Ataman said the decision was not political. “I wanted to have a close relationship with Enes since I took over the job last year, but could not get any response,” he said after announcing the squad, which includes NBA players Ersan Ilyasova, Ömer Asik and Furkan Aldemir. “He still has not apologized to his teammates for past incidents, but he may be a part of the squad in the future,” Ataman added.

Furkan Aldemir’s right-foot injury is worse than the 76ers originally thought. The new power forward missed practice Thursday because of plantar fasciitis and is doubtful to play Friday against the Charlotte Hornets at the Wells Fargo Center. Aldemir sat out the end of practice Wednesday because of a sore right heel. The 6-foot-9, 240-pounder, who signed with the Sixers on Monday, had experienced foot pain in his native Turkey. “It’s not as bad as it sounds,” Sixers coach Brett Brown said after practice at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. “He’s come over here, and all the physicals, MRIs didn’t reveal anything.”

New 76ers power forward Furkan Aldemir sat out the end of practice Wednesday because of a sore right heel. Aldemir, who signed with the Sixers (2-22) on Monday, suffered the injury back in his native Turkey. Coach Brett Brown expects the 6-foot-10, 240-pounder to play against the Charlotte Hornets on Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center. “It was sore enough to have him sit down,” Brown said. “But he’s getting treatment on it, and you know we will see what goes on with that.”
