Dario Saric "intends" to join the Sixers this offseason, according to international basketball journalist David Pick.
Less than two weeks ago a report surfaced that the Sixers planned to buy out Saric's contract in order to bring him over for the 2016-17 campaign, and the latest development will only help to fuel that fire. Brett Brown was previously confident that Saric would come to Philadelphia for the upcoming season, and though he can play either forward spot, the Sixers will have to figure out where he fits in a frontcourt that currently includes Nerlens Noel, Jahlil Okafor and Joel Embiid.

The 76ers are planning on buying out Dario Saric's contract with Anadolu Efes in Turkey in late May or early June.

He's going to be joining a crowded frontcourt rotation in Philly, but that's assuming that Joel Embiid (foot) will be healthy and that the 76ers don't move a big this summer. The 76ers view Saric as a combination forward, but coach Brett Brown would like him to work on his 3-point shot. He's going to be an interesting name to keep an eye on this summer and it already makes sense to put him on your radar in dynasty leagues.

Brett Brown believes that 2014 draft pick Dario Saric can play both small forward and power forward in the NBA.

Brown described Saric as a "do all" player and the Sixers have expressed confidence that he'll join the team for the 2016-17 season. Saric should already be on the radar in dynasty leagues, and he'll be an intriguing gamble in most formats if he does join Philly this summer.
Apr 14 - 2:52 PM

76ers coach Brett Brown is confident that Dario Saric will come to Philly for the 2016-17 season.

"Obviously, decisions are going to have to be made on his part," Brown said. "But we like what we see and we believe he likes what he sees." Saric has a player option for his team in Turkey, but if he opts out he can join the 76ers this summer. He is a talented stretch four who Brown describes as a "competitive bull-in-the-china-shop type player," and it makes sense to own him if you're in a dynasty league.
Mar 5 - 9:10 AM

Dario Saric said that he always communicates with Philly's front office and coach Brett Brown.

"I am always in touch with the people in Philadelphia, I always talk with the General Manager [Sam Hinkie] of the team, and the coach [Brett Brown] about a lot of things that have to do with me and the 76ers," Saric said. The exciting 21-year-old prospect is still expected to join the 76ers prior to the 2016-17 season, so it won't be much longer before Philly's fans will get a good look at him. Saric is worth stashing away in dynasty formats.

Dario Saric plans to join the 76ers during the summer of 2016.

Saric is averaging 12.3 points and 5.0 rebounds in 21.2 minutes with Anadolu Efes and is eyeing a move to the NBA this summer. "I am in constant contact with the Sixers," Saric said. "They wanted me as soon as possible, but I have a contract with Efes. But next summer I have a way out and I'm going to take it." While Saric can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues, owners in dynasty leagues may want to take a flier on the 21-year-old.

Dario Saric had a rough game against the Czech Republic on Sunday, scoring just four points on 1-of-7 shooting.

It wasn't all bad for Saric and he still produced eight boards, four assists, two steals and a block, but it simply wasn't enough and the Czechs cruised to victory in this one. 76ers head coach Brett Brown hinted in a recent interview that we will see Saric in Philly soon, but prospective owners should keep in mind that he isn't expected to come to the states until the 2016-17 season. That being said, there is certainly enough upside for owners in dynasty leagues to use a late-round pick on him.

Brett Brown said that he believes the 76ers will see Dario Saric soon.

"I do," Brown said when asked if Philly could bring Saric over soon. "I think the city is going to see something extraordinarily competitive, very, very skilled and I think his personality, his style of play fits perfectly in this city." Saric is expected to join Philly for the 2016-17 season, so owners in dynasty leagues might want to do some forward thinking and grab him with a late-round pick.

Dario Saric scored 15 points with seven rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Netherlands on Wednesday.

He made just one of his seven attempts from the line, which is unusual for Saric. He's shown some flashes of being a key rotational player and will have another year to grow before he is on the 76ers. If you're in a Dynasty league, you might want to spend a late pick to stash Saric.

Dario Saric is hoping to play for the 76ers during the 2016-17 season.

We won't use direct quotes since it's a translation, but Saric made it clear that he is hopeful to make the jump to the NBA after the 2015-16 season concludes. If the Sixers can get Joel Embiid (foot) healthy ahead of next season, Philadelphia will finally have Embiid, Saric, Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor in the lineup together.

Dario Saric looked great against Germany on Friday, scoring 18 points with 10 rebounds in 32 minutes.

He did a fine job on Dirk Nowitzki, so it's easy to see why the 76ers are so high on the 21-year-old. The No. 12 pick of the 2013 draft won't be coming to the NBA this year, but he has a very intriguing fantasy appeal once he's ready.
Mon, Aug 17, 2015 08:51:00 PM

Sam Hinkie said that he expects Dario Saric to join the 76ers next season.

Saric was acquired by the 76ers in a draft day deal in 2014, and has been playing professionally in Turkey. However, he won't play in the NBA this season, so he can be ignored in all fantasy leagues until next year.

Dario Saric will not play for the Sixers during the 2015-16 season, his agent told ESPN.

This was the expectation and now it's been confirmed. After some rumblings that the Sixers would push for Saric to come stateside this year, that simply won't be the case. The earliest Saric could join the Sixers is now for the 2016-17 season. Will Sixers fans run out of patience by that point?

The 76ers are in talks to bring Dario Saric to the NBA, but his Turkish team loves him.

The 76ers are likely done with their tanking now that they're going to have their two big men ready to go. They'll also have their third pick in this draft ready to go, so they might actually be able to compete in the Eastern Conference. Saric is still a project and won't have much fantasy value on the off chance he's in the NBA in 2015.

Dario Saric's team is playing for the Turkish League championship following their sweep in the semifinals.

Saric hasn't been lighting it up on the stat sheet, averaging just 10 points per game during the three-game sweep. His efficiency is climbing due to better 3-point production, which is certainly an en vogue characteristic of forwards these days. For now, it's still unknown if last year's lottery pick -- traded for Elfrid Payton -- will be in the NBA next season.
