Jake Fischer: Sense among several agents who have worked with Anadolu Efes is the Turkish team will ask for at least $2 million for a Dario Saric buyout. And per the CBA, the maximum buyout the Sixers & Saric could pay legally, with taking some money out of Saric’s rookie deal, is $2,067,720. That $2,607,720 is calc by the diff in 120% & 80% of Saric’s rookie scale contract x2, plus the $625,000 Excluded Itn; Player Payment Amount. If Efes demands over $2M from Sixers/Saric for buyout, Saric would sacrifice $1,442,720 of his possible $1,898,300 for his rookie season.

Some players from the Philadelphia 76ers visited you last summer when you were playing with Croatia at the World Cup in Spain. How did that feel? Dario Saric: That meant so much to me. Three top players came to Spain to support me and support my team. The coach (Brett Brown) came too. It was a big thing for me that people from the team that selected me came to support me, that they had my back like that. It made playing easier for me and didn’t feel any additional pressure.

Dario Saric non-committal about playing with 76ers next season

Is there any chance that you play (in Philadelphia) next season? Dario Saric: Next season? I don’t know and I can’t speak about that because I don’t know yet the situation, how things are going to work out. I can say that I’m happy here at Efes and I’m also happy that people from Philadelphia came here and want me there. That’s all I can tell you right now. I don’t have any information or any feeling regarding what could happen. I’m just focused on the rest of the season. If I stay here or if I go to the NBA, I will be happy (either way). I don’t know what could happen this summer or next summer. Now it’s not the time to talk about that.
Saric is a 6-foot-10 Croatian power forward the Sixers took with the No. 12 choice in the 2014 draft. He signed a three-year contract to play professionally in Turkey less than a week before the draft that apparently doesn’t have a buyout clause until 2016. “He’s under contract for another year,” Sixers CEO Scott O’Neil said. “It’s no secret we would like him here. It’s no secret to think he could be part of an incredible opportunity here.”
As he said to the Greek TV channel OTE TV in an interview recorded at the end of Euroleague’s Top16: “I have a contract with Efes until 2016. That’s what I can say about my situation right now. I will fight for Efes and hope to win some titles”. To be exact in the summer of 2016 his contract with the Turkish club includes an NBA buy out, but he can stay in Istanbul at least for one more season.
Derek Bodner: About Saric: No currently built-in buyout in Saric’s contract. Only way to get him over early would be if Efes desirous to get rid of him. w/how important Saric is, any newly negotiated buyout would likely be very expensive. #sixers limited in what they can contribute to buyout. The only real way would be if Efes were having financial difficulties, but they are not. Short version: I wouldn’t expect Saric to come over this season. Very little that the #sixers can do.
Dario Saric has joined Jonas Valanciunas and Ricky Rubio as a multiple winner of the FIBA Europe Young Men’s Player of the Year Award. FIBA Europe announced on Wednesday that for a second year running, Dario Saric has been voted by fans and a panel of experts as the 2014 FIBA Europe Young Men’s Player of the Year. Prior to Saric winning in 2013, Valanciunas had taken out the previous two awards, whilst Rubio reigned supreme from 2007 to 2009.
Yasmin Repesa was the coach who gave Dario Saric the chance to play for Croatian national yeam two years ago. Saric has an excellent season in Euroleague until now playing for Dusan Ivkovic’s Efes and the 53 years old coach reveals what he said to him about his choice to stay in Europe and not go directly to the NBA after being drafted: “I know him very well because I put him in national team two years ago and he is going step by step, getting better and better by year. I told him that he could go immediately to Philadelphia and have minutes on the court, but my opinion was that it was better to go to Istanbul and work on his body, getting also some experience on highest European level. Because you know, he will never be late for the NBA. He can do it a little bit later. It’s important to develop himself game by game”.
