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.

Saric: Best To Stay In Europe For Development

Mar 11, 2014 11:51 AM

Dario Saric will wait until after the current season to decide whether he will enter the NBA Draft, or possibly move from KK Cibona to either Turkey or Spain.

“I will not decide anything until the end of the season” said Saric. “In the summer I will determine my future. For my development the best is to stay in Europe but we’ll see what happens. I don’t even have an agent right now. I will talk with my family but I will make the final decision."

“There is not only Efes in the game. The other options are still Barcelona and Real Madrid” said Predrag Saric to 24Sata. “If Lorbek and Nachbar leaves Barcelona and if Mirotic leaves Real Madrid, they may have room for Dario” added the father of the player. “I think Dario should play in Europe two more seasons. He has to play. If he goes to a big club without guaranteed playing time, then it is better to stay with Cibona”
