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.
As a follow up to an initial report by, a source familiar with the situation has informed that former Oregon Duck, Arsalan Kazemi will be sent overseas for the 2013-2014 season. Playing overseas provides advantages for both Kazemi and the Sixers, most importantly he will not count against their salary cap or luxury tax and the Sixers will still hold his rights and be able to make a decision based on his progress.
