With the 12th pick in the 2014 NBA draft the Sixers picked Croatian native Dario Saric. With his current contract situation Saric will continue to play for Anadolu Efes of Istanbul, Turkey for possibly as long as two years while his NBA rights are assigned to the 76ers. As we all know, Saric has been making some big news over in the Euro League as Saric (20 yrs. Old) won the Euroleague’s MVP award for the month of November and became the youngest recipient of the that honor.
“It took a lot of practice and a lot of work to win such a special award as this,” Saric told Euroleague.net. “It is very important to me, I am very happy to win it. It is amazing and a part of my dream has come true.”
