Arsalan Kazemi is still hoping to play the 2015-16 season with the 76ers.
The Sixers are thinking about sending Kazemi overseas for the season, but Kazemi is hoping his Summer League play lands him a spot on the 76ers 15-man roster. "[Sam Hinkie] knows what I can do and what I can bring to the table," Kazemi said. "I'm just trying to do that to perfection. I'm hoping that it leads to being a part of this team." The 25-year-old faces an uphill battle to stick in the states this season, but his Summer League averages of 5.5 points and 9.5 rebounds aren't hurting his case. Jul 14 - 1:12 PM

The Sixers are considering sending second-round pick Arsalan Kazemi overseas for the upcoming season.

The team would keep his rights and his contract would not count against the cap or luxury tax. Philly would likely take another look at the 23-year-old next year.

The 76ers selected Oregon C Arsalan Kazemi at No. 54 overall, making him the first Iranian player ever drafted in the NBA.

The pick was acquired from the Wizards in the deal for Glen Rice Jr. Kazemi is a high-energy player who grabbed 10.0 boards while shooting 59.5 percent from the field as a senior, but even with the rebuilding Sixers he's unlikely to make a dent in fantasy leagues.
