NBA Draft: Dario Saric staying in Europe

The NBA Draft is quickly approaching, and a name that has been surrounding the NBA Draft for a couple years now is Dario Saric from Croatia.

Saric has entered the NBA Draft before, but withdrew his name to stay and play overseas. This year, Saric kept his name in the draft and will be selected by a team. However, reports coming out today says the team that drafts Saric will have to wait on him to come over.

Saric is projected to be a lottery pick, falling somewhere around the tenth pick. According to Sportando, Saric is rumored to be going to the Denver Nuggets with the 11th pick.

With the three year deal that Saric is going to sign, if the team that drafts him wants to bring him over before the deal is over, they would have to buy him out of his contract with the Euroleague team.

On top of him staying overseas, Saric will continue to develop under one of the best Euroleague coaches, and gets to play on one of the best European teams in Efes.

Some may think it is time for Saric to come over to the NBA, but for those, they might just have to wait a few more years.
