One of the names which are expected to be drafted from Europe is Vasilije Micic. The 20 years old Serbian point guard is expected to leave this summer Mega Vizura, he is arguably the best player of his age in his position and he is also rumored to be a target of Anadolu Efes, like an other big draft prospect, Dario Saric. As he said to Eurohoops during the Eurocamp at Treviso, no matter what happens in the draft, he would like to stay in Europe for the immediate future: “I played four years in Mega and I think now it’s time for the next level. I don’t want to go… to make a big step in my career. I want to go step by step, because always when I tried to make some big steps, I made mistakes. So I think that my next step will be a something in Europe”. EuroHoops.net

The buy out for Saric to Cibona is 1.2 million euros and it will be paid by Efes in three annual installments. This summer the Croatian team will receive 400.000 euros. The same amount (1.2 m. euros) is the NBA out included in the new contract with Efes. As for the player, despite the rumors about a monster deal, his total contract with Anadolu Efes is worth around 2 million euros in total for three seasons according to sources from Turkey. Considering the age of the player, it’s not a bad deal and we have to note that those are net amounts. EuroHoops.net

Dario Saric confirmed to 24Sata that he will decide his future after the season. The Croatian forward has a rich offer from Anadolu Efes Istanbul and the chance to be in the 2014 NBA Draft. “I will not decide anything until the end of the season” said Saric. “In the summer I will determine my future. For my development the best is to stay in Europe but we’ll see what happens. I don’t even have an agent right now.

His father Predrag talked with 24Sata about his son. “There is not only Efes in the game. The other options are still Barcelona and Real Madrid” said Predrag to 24Sata. “If Lorbek and Nachbar leaves Barcelona and if Mirotic leaves Real Madrid, they will make rook for Darius” added the father of the player. “I think Dario should play in Europe two more season. He has to play. If he goes to this big club without guaranteed playing time, then it is better to stay with Cibona” ended Predrag. Sportando

Hidayet Turkoglu: I've been in the NBA for 13 years and the only European who's been in the league longer than I have is Nowitzki. I have one more goal in the NBA, which is to enter the 1,000-game club.. I'm very close to that goal. After I accomplish my goal, I'll either play in Fenerbahce (which I'm a big fan of) or play in Anadolu Efes, which helped me get where I am today as a player. I get a lot of messages from Fenerbahce fans but first I have to get through this period. After the hard part is over, I think I'll enjoy making that decision. Ajansspor.com
