Sirius XM NBA: “Saric has improved a lot over last 3 or 4 years…We’re going to do what we can to get him signed this summer.” — Bryan Colangelo
Sam Hinkie on Dario Saric: “I think he’s very excited to begin his NBA career. We’re in frequent communication with him. It’s not a full-time job, but it’s a part-time job for a lot of us, including me. He’s delayed his NBA career, and I don’t think is going to want to delay it a whole lot longer. He’s one of the best players in the world not playing in the NBA. Most people want to scratch that itch and measure yourself and see where you stack up against the best players in the world.”
Thunder center Enes Kanter posted a series of messages on his Twitter account Sunday afternoon in the wake of a terrorist attack in Ankara, the capital city of his native Turkey. Dozens of people were killed and more than 100 were wounded Sunday evening when a car bomb exploded at a bus stop in a park near Ankara’s main square — the third deadly attack in the Turkish capital in the last six months. Some of Kanter’s Twitter messages included the hashtag #Ankara. Following the attack, reports surfaced of government-imposed restrictions of broadcast and publication coverage of the incident, including a country-wide censorship of Twitter and Facebook within Turkey, which caused an uproar among social media users.
