Dario Saric Had Interest In Joining 76ers For 15-16

Jul 8, 2015 12:03 PM

Dario Saric had interest in joining the Philadelphia 76ers for the upcoming season.

Saric will have to remain with Anadolu Efes until 2016.

“Saric told people he wanted to join Philadelphia now, but couldn’t because his contract had no out-clause,” a source told Basketball Insiders.

Saric was the 12th overall pick of the 2014 NBA Draft.

“It’s really hard for me to answer that,” Saric said. “I can’t comment.”

“I think I’m ready to compete in the NBA, against the best players, but we built a great team in Efes and I want to help the club win a championship.”

Dario Saric Won't Join 76ers In 15-16

Jun 22, 2015 10:45 AM

Dario Saric won't play for the Philadelphia 76ers next season.

Saric was the 12th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft and is under a three-year contract with Anadolu Efes of Turkey.

The Sixers reportedly have attempted to negotiate a buyout over the past month, but Saric's buyout is too expensive to make the move practical, according to sources.

Saric has a player option on his contract that will technically allow him to come to the NBA for the 2016-17 season. However, there will be a big incentive for him to stay in Turkey for a third year and wait until the 2017-18 season to play in the NBA.

Saric won't be bound by the rookie scale if he waits three years to come to the NBA as Nikola Mirotic did last summer with the Chicago Bulls.
