After a career-high 24 point night in a win over the Chicago Bulls, Korkmaz is happy to still be in a Sixers uniform. “This is why they call it the NBA,” he said. “There’s a lot of stuff going on here, some of them you can control, some of them you cannot control. Right now, I’m happy to be here. I’m happy to be a part of this team. I’m just trying to give my best on the court.”
There’s a feeling around the league that the Wizards almost have to shop Bertans, if just to see if there is a contender willing to go wild with draft picks to get him. Bertans has been terrific this season, a prolific three-point shooter, jacking up nearly nine per game, who is among the candidates for the NBA’s Most Improved award. He seems like an ideal fit with a John Wall–Bradley Beal backcourt, the kind of frontcourt player who can open up the floor for both.
