Philadelphia 76ers swingman Furkan Korkmaz talked about the reasons the 2018-2019 season has been “really tough” for him. “I was the first guy who asked to be traded. Then six-seven players left and I stayed the whole season. It was a really tough season for me to get used to everything and deal with all this stuff,” Korkmaz said in his season exit interview, per Dave Uram. “And then I started to play. That’s the NBA. I started to play after the trade happened.”

The Sixers said earlier in the week that they hadn’t decided whether they were going to exercise the $2.03 million third-year team option on his contract. The team is considering trading him. A source said Korkmaz wants to be traded because he is not playing much. He would not confirm nor deny that on Tuesday. One reason for not picking up Korkmaz’s deal is to save an extra $2.03 million in salary-cap room and have an extra roster spot for free agents.
