The Philadelphia 76ers remain hopeful of bringing Dario Saric over for the 16-17 season.

Bryan Colangelo and Brett Brown met with Saric and his agent in Turkey on Wednesday.

“The timing of him coming to the NBA is still in question,” Colangelo told Friday while in Treviso, Italy at the addidas Eurocamp.

Colangelo tried to clarify what he told the website on Monday when he was back in Philadelphia.

“It wasn’t pessimistic. It wasn’t optimistic,” he said. "It was somewhat neutral as to whether or not I felt he would be coming over. I still feel that way. 

“I’d like to think our objectives are aligned. What we would like to do is get him in to play for us next year.”
