Ford: Dario Saric Is One Of The Better Playmaking Fours

May 27, 2015 5:32 PM

The Philadelphia 76ers own the draft rights to Dario Saric and Chad Ford was asked during his chat how he would rank in this year's class.

"Probably Top 10. But maybe higher based on the NBA's infatuation at the moment with playmaking fours," writes Ford. "Everyone wants a Draymond Green right now and Saric is one of the best playmaking fours I've seen in the draft for a while. Zach Lowe did a great story on this yesterday worth reading. But given that criteria, Saric would be very intriguing to teams. I think given the way the NBA is playing right now, he could be a very valuable piece for the Sixers when he decides to come."

Saric was the 12th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft and currently plays for Anadolu Efes.

Dario Saric Unlikely To Sign With 76ers Before 2016 Despite Unhappiness With Turkish Club

Oct 17, 2014 12:16 AM

Dario Saric signed a two-year contract with Anadolu Efes in Turkey and the biggest obstacle for him to come to the NBA before 2016 reportedly remains financial.

There is not a buyout in Saric's contract with Efes, meaning the only way the Philadelphia 76ers' first round pick can sign an NBA deal is if his current team lets him go.

Saric's father has reached a boiling point with Efes.

Dario Saric Signs Three-Year Deal With Anadolu Efes

Jun 23, 2014 12:08 PM

Dario Saric has agreed upon a three-year deal with Anadolu Efes of Turkey, according to a source.

The deal will have a player option for the third year. Saric is expected to receive and sign a contract in the next 24 hours.

Saric's contract will essentially prohibit him from playing in the NBA for at least two seasons.

Saric was receiving looks from lottery teams as high as No. 10 with the Philadelphia 76ers, No. 11 with the Denver Nuggets and No. 12 with the Orlando Magic. He may slip beyond the lottery, but he becomes an option in the mid to late teens with the Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics, Phoenix Suns and Chicago Bulls.
