Are international NBA picks too risky?

Only 16 of the 30 players drafted in the first round were born in the U.S. (fewest since 1973). Eight of them did not play college basketball (T-most, 2003). The 2003 draft had eight such players, who have combined to play in zero All-Star Games.

What you need to know about Korkmaz

Says NBA Insider Chad Ford: "His shooting ability and international experience at Efes make him an attractive option. So does the flexibility that comes with being able to either stash him or bring him over this year." Stats, analysis, projections on Korkmaz

After Furkaz Korkmaz goes 26th to the 76ers, there are still three players waiting in the green room (Deyonta Davis, Skal Labissière, Dejounte Murray) and only four first-round picks left to be made.

Chad Ford ESPN Senior Writer 

The 76ers select Turkish wing Furkan Kirkmaz with the No. 26 pick. Love this pick. Good athlete. Very good shooter. Can handle the ball. Was No. 13 on my final Big Board.

Timothe Luwawu is the 24th overall pick by the 76ers, leaving three players still waiting in the green room.

Chad Ford ESPN Senior Writer 

The 76ers take French wing Timothe Luwawu at No. 25. It makes sense. They need wings who can shoot and defend. Luwawu can do both. I'm not in love with him. I'd prefer Furkan Korkmaz. But it's a solid pick.

The 76ers are on the clock again, which means it's time for the "Let's Go Sixers" chants to resume at Barclays Center.

Ben Simmons, the newest 76er, idolized Allen Iverson growing up: "A lot of people don't know that I actually had a poster of AI when I was young in my room. I was a big diamond-cut poster of him with the braids. But no, I just remember him being one of those point guards, a smaller guy with braids and corn rows and the headbands. I remember I used to have the corn rows when I was younger. He was one of those players that fought every day."
