A very rare interview with Dario Saric: http://bit.ly/TiWYXY Says he has spoken with the Lakers and the Hawks Twitter

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

There are strong indications that Dario Saric's invitation to the draft-night green room is the result of a promise from the Nuggets to grab him with the 11th pick. Teams in the mid-to-late lottery have tried to get Saric to come in for workouts, but have been told he'll be gone by the time they pick. CBSSports.com

Saric was actually ranked No. 1 on this list last season before inexplicably withdrawing two weeks before the draft. Saric had a lottery "promise" from the Dallas Mavericks, and sources say he likely would've gone even higher to the Blazers at No. 10. He improved in virtually every aspect of his game this year but the questions about whether he'll withdraw from the draft again or insist on staying in Europe if he is drafted hover over his draft stock.

Though they are also interested in Croatian power forward Dario Saric as a candidate for the 17th pick, his team (KK Cibona Zagreb) is still playing. As such, Saric probably won’t work out for any NBA team this spring, though he also intrigues the Celtics for another reason: He has reportedly said he will definitely come to the NBA next season if he is drafted by either the Celtics or Lakers.
