Orazio Cauchi: It’s no surprise that Dario Saric won’t come over this season, there wasn’t an NBA buyout in his deal this Summer. #NBA
Saric is under a three-year contract with Turkish powerhouse Anadolu Efes. 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.
Croatian forward Dario Saric, the 12th overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft, won’t be playing for the Philadelphia 76ers next season, his agent Jeff Schwartz told ESPN.: 4 more rumors
Jake Fischer: Huge wrinkle, as several sources suggested: NBA does not regulate NBA team-European team negotiations. Sixers could illegally pay anything. Several league sources have suggested Sixers & Saric could pay any type of buyout without the NBA ever truly knowing the specific details.: 4 more rumors
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.: 4 more rumors
Derek Bodner: I would absolutely love to be wrong, but I don’t expect to see Saric in Philadelphia this year. / Buddha: What are the hurdles Derek. What would have to happen to accomplish this? / Derek Bodner: #sixers can only contribute $625k to a buyout. Whatever buyout they could negotiate with Efes likely much more.
David ‘Dubi’ Pick: Philadelphia in talks to lure overseas asset Dario Saric to U.S., I’m told. He is under contract and Turks love him. I doubt Efes surrender Dario Saric, but notion among Sixers official is – “we want him now”.: 4 more rumors
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.
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.
Trying to utilize Saric, who has the ball skills to initiate the offense, at small forward in the NBA would be a risk because “he’s not so fast,” according to the journalist. “The problem is with his lateral quickness,” the journalist said. “That is pretty average at this stage. He’s frequently getting burned by smaller players on the perimeter.”

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.
The season for the Sixers ended, but for Anadolu Efes things are just starting to get interesting. And at this point Dario Saric is not thinking about the NBA. To be exact, the Sixers will probably have to wait at least until 2016.
Orazio Cauchi: I’ve mentioned this before but I can confirm what @Derek Bodner just said: no NBA buyout in Saric’s deal for this summer. It’s very very unlikely that Saric will join the #sixers next season. In 2016 there will be more possibilities, that’s for sure. #NBA
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.
According to his contract, Dario Saric will play another season in Turkey before joining Philadelphia.
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.
Mark Woods: Dario Saric named FIBA Young Men’s Player of the Year ahead of Giannis Antetokounmpo. Spain’s Angela Salvadores wins Young Women’s award.
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”.
FIBA Europe announced the candidates for Young Player of the Year’s award. The list: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Dario Saric, Cedi Osman, Jusuf Nurkic, Aleksandar Vezenkov, Domantas Sabonis, Dragan Bender, Stefan Peno, Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, Federico Mussini.
