Dario Saric will NOT play for the Sixers next year despite a supposed attempt by the team to get him over here. Chad Ford:
Croatian forward Dario Saric, the 12th overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft, won’t be playing for the Philadelphia 76ers next season, his agent Jeff Schwartz told ESPN.
Saric is under a three-year contract with Turkish powerhouse Anadolu Efes. The Sixers reportedly have attempted to negotiate a buyout over the past month, but Saric’s buyout is too expensive to make the move practical, according to sources.
Someone – maybe in the comments? – predicted this token attempt. Good call.
FOX’s broadcast of the US Open was a mess. That course was stupid. And yet, a +45% ratings increase (probably thanks to prime time) over last year. Everyone hates Joe Buck, but he was the least of the broadcast’s problem (I think he did a pretty good job, actually). The red streak on tee shots was a bit much, but useful in some cases. But the main camera angles, pacing, “studio show” with Curt Menefee, “cabin” interviews with Holly Sonders, overlays, sense of context, commentary overall, and basic understanding of the game was an embarrassment. They couldn’t even get the dad shot right. That said, FOX excels at close-ups, and those were fun.
Now Major League Baseball is beating the “legalize sports gambling” drum. Only a matter of time.
