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.'"

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
