The Blazers can offer Hawes no more than a midlevel exception, which would, at most, pencil out to $5.3 million per year for up to four years. He made $6.5 million last season, when he averaged 13.2 points, 8.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists, while shooting 42 percent from three-point range, for the Philadelphia 76ers and Cleveland Cavaliers. It's unclear how long Hawes will draw out free agency or whether he will visit any other teams. But, the league source said, Hawes is in "no rush" to make a decision. Oregonian

Saric figures to spend the next two seasons in Turkey. At least. Sam Hinkie said that if all things were equal, he would prefer Saric come to the NBA sooner than later. But, as the Sixers’ president and general manager noted, all things are “rarely equal.” This weekend, after the Sixers traded Elfrid Payton to secure the rights to Saric, the Croatian forward spoke to the media. He was asked why he signed that contract to play in Turkey and whether his father pushed for it. "No, my father, before I came here to the United States, he said to me, ‘you make the decision, but I think [Turkey] the best option for you,’” Saric said. “He changed his mind and said that I [should] go into the NBA and I said, 'I think it's better for me to spend two years in Turkey.'"
