On September 11th, the Iranian Students News Agency claims to have conducted an interview with the 23 year-old, where Kazemi is quoted as saying he will play for Petrochimi Bandar Imam in the Iranian Super Basketball League. Petrochimi won the 2012-13 Iranian championship, and in the past has been able to convince many Americans (most notably Smush Parker and Julius Hodge) to play there, leading one to believe they’re a rather wealthy organization.
The 76ers are considering sending second-round pick Arsalan Kazemi overseas for the upcoming season. Under NBA rules, they would retain the rights to the power forward out of Oregon. He, however, would not count against the Sixers’ salary cap or luxury tax for the 2013-14 season. “He would get a chance to work on his game somewhere else for a year,” Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie said of the option. “Then [we] would have the opportunity to reassess where he is later. “I think that’s an attractive opportunity for someone like him.”
