While 2014 12th overall pick Dario Saric is unlikely to come to America to join the Philadelphia 76ers anytime soon, Sixers fans can at least rest safely knowing that Saric's career is in good hands overseas in Croatia, and that there's definitely no behind-the-scenes shadiness distracting from his basketball development and fast-track to the NBA. Wait, no, I mean the exact opposite of that. According to a recent Vice article, it seems like there's nothing but murkiness surrounding the beginning to Saric's pro career, which includes ties to a convicted embezzler, political-prisoner freer and private security magnate, who paid Saric's recent gigantic transfer fee to keep him in the Adriatic league for reasons mostly unclear.
