Bo McCalebb Close To Deal With European Team

European free-agent point guard Bo McCalebb is nearing agreement on a contract with a team in Europe, meaning no move to the NBA for now, sources told RealGM.

In an accomplished professional career overseas, McCalebb transformed himself into a star and an NBA-caliber player.

Several NBA teams maintained conversations with McCalebb throughout the offseason, and the 29-year-old had been more inclined than ever to enter the league, but none progressed to deliver a contract.

McCalebb averaged 11 points, three assists and 1.3 steals per game while shooting 56.9 percent from the field for Fenerbahçe Ülker last season – his second year with the Turkish club. He became a free agent shortly before the start of the NBA's July free agency.

Partizan in Serbia has been widely speculated internationally as a possibility for McCalebb, but the club is out of the mix as the 6-foot product finalizes his decision, sources said.

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

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.
