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.

Ante Tomic Remains Undecided On Joining Jazz

Jun 3, 2015 9:55 PM

Ante Tomic remains undecided about his NBA plans.

Tomic was drafted by the Utah Jazz in 2008 and they would like to bring him over to help their frontcourt rotation.

"It’s neither yes nor no," Tomic told the Spanish publication Gigantes when asked whether he plans to leave Barcelona for the NBA and the Utah Jazz. "It’s difficult to summarize. Sometimes I see myself there and others no. I still have time to think it over."

Tomic has played for Barcelona since 2012 and is already 28 years old.
