Report: Dario Saric Plans to Join Sixers for 2016-2017 Season
The Sixers patience might be finally paying off.
According to reports from international basketball reporter Dave Pick, one of the the Sixers 2014 first round picks, Dario Saric will be coming to play for the Sixers this season. According to Pick, Saric has a player option for his team in Turkey and told his teammates that he will opt out of that deal to join the Sixers.
Saric averaged 11.7 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game with Anadola Efes in 2015-16, and would give the Sixers another talented player who coach Brett Brown has described as a do all" player.
Acquired in a draft-day trade from the Orlando Magic in 2014, Saric was drafted 12th overall, some reports had him going as high as No. 5 overall if he would have come to the NBA right away.
Finally the Sixers could have something go there way and we could see a very crowded front court with their two 2014 first rounders Joel Embiid and Dario Saric joining Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor in the lineup together.
