Anadolu Efes Rumors
Despite the Sixers’ late push to bring him over as soon as possible, negotiations with Turkish finalist Anadolu Efes failed to materialize. Saric is handcuffed overseas until 2016, but it was clear, sources familiar with his wishes said, that he wanted to join Philadelphia. I asked Saric for his thoughts about moving to the U.S. and the situation with his Turkish club. “It’s really hard for me to answer that,” Saric said. “I can’t comment.” “I think I’m ready to compete in the NBA, against the best players, but we built a great team in Efes and I want to help the club win a championship.”

Saric is under a three-year contract with Turkish powerhouse Anadolu Efes. The Sixers reportedly have attempted to negotiate a buyout over the past month, but Saric’s buyout is too expensive to make the move practical, according to sources.
Croatian forward Dario Saric, the 12th overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft, won’t be playing for the Philadelphia 76ers next season, his agent Jeff Schwartz told ESPN.
