The Indiana Pacers have released Furkan Korkmaz, eyeing Europe for the first time. Besiktas made a strong offer to sign him.

After seven years in the NBA, Furkan Korkmaz found himself in the unemployment fund a few days ago. The trade that sent him to the Indiana Pacers was essentially his swan song for being there (this year) in the NBA, as he now looks toward Europe for the rest of the season.

They also broadcast in TürkiyeHis representative is in open contact with Besiktas regarding a four-month contract. Just. the reason; He doesn't want to give up trying again in the NBA during free agency, figuring that – looking back – he would find something to cover him and give him the opportunity to rebuild his name, on the other side of the Atlantic.

But for now, the main thing for him is to stay active and get into a competitive rhythm by playing in his home country. Naturally, it should be noted that he is not entitled to participate in European competitions, since the deadline for the European Cup has expired.

As for the amount he is demanding? According to the same reports, his agent requested $600,000 for four months. That is about 150 thousand dollars per month.
