2014 NBA Draft: Dario Saric likely won’t declare for draft


 

One a day where several collegiate and international prospects have decided to declare for the 2014 NBA Draft, one foreign born prospect likely won’t be declaring for the draft.

According to ESPN.com’s Chad Ford, forward Dario Saric likely won’t enter the NBA Draft and instead sign with Anadolu Efes Spor Kulübü, formerly Efes Pilson, of the Turkish Basketball League.

Saric hasn’t officially announced anything, but multiple sources say that he has an agreement in principle with Efes Pilson that will pay him $8.27 million over the next three years. There’s no word yet on what the NBA buyout looks like, but he for sure won’t be able to come to the NBA next season and sources say it’s highly unlikely he’ll even declare for this year’s draft.

Saric declared for the draft last year, but withdrew before the deadline.

Saric is ranked ninth among draft eligible prospects and is currently projected to be selected with the ninth overall pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
