2016 Liberty Ballers Community Big Board No. 13: Philly Gets Another Furkan

New, comments

Furkan Korkmaz took the 12th spot. Who you got at 13?

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Our long national nightmare is over -- Philadelphia has filled the Furkan-sized hole in its heart and awarded Furkan Korkmaz the No. 12 spot on the Community Big Board. Korkmaz clocked in with a whopping 50 percent of the vote, toppling second-place Jakob Poeltl (17 percent) by a large margin. The Sixers could certainly use his plus-shooting from the outside regardless of who they draft at No. 1, so a solid choice all things considered.

At the behest of the comment section, we'll stray a little bit from consensus with the names being added to the mix.

UNLV's Patrick McCaw is hovering between the late first and mid-second in many "traditional" mock drafts but has quickly become a favorite among our writers and members of the community. He's got excellent hands on defense, great length on the wing and a burgeoning three-point stroke. McCaw is one of the few players in this draft I think can be a plus player on both ends of the court, and would fit like a glove regardless of who the top pick is.

France's Isaia Cordinier is a great candidate for the Sixers to stash with one of their late picks in the first. There are concerns about his competition level which were amplified by his struggles at the Nike Hoop Summit in April, but still plenty to like. Elite athleticism and a proficient stroke from downtown will have to carry him while the rest of his game catches up.
