No point in waiting for Furkan Korkmaz. The Turkish hot prospect, who is currently taking part in pre-Draft workouts with the Denver Nuggets, expressed his will to play in the NBA next year.

“I want to come right away here”, said the 18-year old player, as reported by BSN Denver. “If I come here right away next year, it’s going to help me a lot. For example, if I reach my potential after three years in Europe, it’s going to take less time if I come here right away”.

Korkmaz, who is projected between the 14th and the 20th draft picks, is confident of his strengths. “My idea was to be in the top 10 art the beginning of the season. I think everybody knows me. For sure I want to be a lottery pick”.
