Are the Sixers and Dario Saric Close to a Deal?
Positive vibes continue to surround the Sixers like the drafting of Ben Simmons, the continued health of Joel Embiid and the news about Dario Saric.
Sources told ESPN.com on Wednesday that Saric and the Sixers are actively working on the details that would enable the 2014 first round draft pick to head to play for the Sixers after finishing up play with the Croatian national team this summer.
Saric has stated in the past that he would come stateside after two years of playing in Turkey. The feeling is that Saric will get a buyout with his European club and make his NBA debut this coming season for the Sixers.
Saric told the paper:
"I have another year of contract with Efes and Perasović wants to stay, but I promised the people that will come after two seasons. The menu is what was promised the most important. If you are a man of your word, no matter what is on paper," said Saric
"Everything is going in the direction that this decision happen. I'm waiting to finish this tournament to once again sit down and make a deal and go to the signing of the contract in America," said Saric
