Korkmaz comes with big expectations on his shoulders, already labelled as the player to carry the Turkish team for the next generation. The youngster has ice running through his veins, showing a cool, calm demeanour when stepping up to make the big shots in crunch time. He played a key role in earning Turkey the bronze medal earlier this summer in Greece at the U19 World Championship, averaging 13.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 2.1 steals per game, subsequently seeing him named on the All-Star Five. Korkmaz was also a key member of the Turkish team which took gold on home soil at the 2014 U18 European Championship. Brave and extremely quick with excellent ball handling skills, he views the game like a guard. He is expected to be one of the main weapons of Ataman's side at EuroBasket this summer.
