Dario Saric
PF, 6’10, 223lbs, 23 years old, 1 year of experience

None of it is quite there yet, but the rookie season showed an awful lot of potential. As a total body of work, Saric rebounded fairly well yet shot inefficiently and threw away a lot of passes, yet if only games after the All-Star break are viewed, he really put it together, a driving big with stretch potential (and 106 made rookie threes), with passing vision, a high IQ, unselfishness and some stand-out defensive plays with his good athleticism. (There is an oddly large increase in his splits on the second half of back-to-back games that is probably a statistical anomaly but is mentioned here anyway.) A Simmons/Embiid/Saric/Holmes front court is all a team needs to progress with. It has something for everyone and all areas covered.

Player Plan: Three years of rookie scale salary remaining. Long term fit with Simmons and Embiid not obvious, but the talent is, so keep, evaluate, establish, and figure it out later.
