Soon enough, we’ll know for sure if the Will He or Won’t He drama surrounding Dario Saric is truly coming to an end. Though Dario has said over and over again that he wants to come to Philadelphia this summer, some people still doubt him. Bryan Colangelo doesn’t know Dario very well, so he’ll be traveling to Turkey with Brett Brown soon to talk to Dario in person and make sure he’s committed.
This morning on Breakfast on Broad, Colangelo said that he hopes Dario comes over. “We think this is good timing for him,” the younger Colangelo said. “We hope that he does have a desire to be here.” Brett Brown (and previously Sam Hinkie) has been in fairly constant communication with Saric, and while Brown gets “a kick out of his English,” he said they communicate regularly through WhatsApp (Brett Brown might be WhatsApp’s oldest user).
We’ve seen Dario’s broken English before, but hope the repeated reports of him wanting to be in Philadelphia next year don’t have some weird and awful lost in translation nonsense going on. He’d look pretty foolish, and so would I.
