Dario Saric scored four points on 1-of-6 shooting with seven rebounds, three assists and three turnovers in Friday’s blowout loss to the Bulls.
Ersan Ilyasova (14 points, seven boards, two assists, one three, 26 minutes) is a Bryan Colangelo guy and Brett Brown is on board with having Ilyasova in front for now. The reality is that Saric has struggled to make an impact at times but is nowhere near inept on the floor. Ilyasova has come in and made a few shots and that gives the Sixers a different, more dynamic look — but it’s not like he has been devoid of problems.
Look for them to split time with Saric getting more minutes and production as the year goes on. But if you wanted to move on for a hot free agent, we’re not going to tell you not to. Saric has a top-75 upside when producing but that is probably more like top-100 if something goes right this month. Ilyasova only has low-end streaming appeal in 12-14 team leagues.
