The Philadelphia 76ers are bringing back Furkan Korkmaz on a two-year deal, his agent, Mike Lindeman, told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The first year of the contract reportedly will be fully guaranteed, sources informed Wojnarowski.

Philadelphia drafted Korkmaz 26th overall in 2016 but declined his 2019-20 option. However, the team found itself in desperate need of depth after failing to re-sign JJ Redick and missing out on veteran sharpshooter Kyle Korver.

The Turkish guard will likely play a significant role in the Sixers' perimeter rotation after showing growth in his sophomore campaign, averaging 5.8 points and 2.2 rebounds in 14.1 minutes per contest.
