Report: Dario Saric Plans To Join Sixers Next Season
It sounds like there finally might be some resolution in the Dario Saric situation.
Sixers GM Bryan Colangelo informed Saric’s Turkish club that the team intends to sign him this weekend, international journalist David Pick tweets.
Philadelphia selected the 6-foot-10 forward, who is 22 years old, 12th overall in the 2014 draft.
Waiting until next season would have allowed Saric to sign for a much greater price tag, similar to the deal Nikola Mirotic signed with the Bulls, a 3-year, $16.6 million deal, that was outside of the rookie scale.
Now the Sixers will have his services for the upcoming season.
He was recently named MVP in the Olympic Qualifier with averages of 14 points, 10 boards and 2.2 assists.
UPDATE: According to agent Misko Raznatovic (via Twitter), the Sixers and Saric have agreed to terms on a new contract, and the young forward is headed to Philadelphia to sign his deal.
