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.

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”. EuroHoops.net

New 76ers power forward Furkan Aldemir sat out the end of practice Wednesday because of a sore right heel. Aldemir, who signed with the Sixers (2-22) on Monday, suffered the injury back in his native Turkey.
