The Orlando Magic selected Croatian forward Dario Saric with the No. 12 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. He will be traded to the Philadelphia 76ers for point guard Elfrid Payton, as reported by CBSSports.com's Ken Berger.

Saric, who reportedly signed a three-year deal with Anadolu Efes of the Turkish League earlier this week, is expected to spend at least two more years overseas before making his NBA debut.

The 6-10, 225-pound Saric averaged 20.3 points and 11.2 rebounds per game in the FIBA U-19 world championships in 2013.

This could turn out to be a steal, as Saric is one of the most skilled players in the draft. The Sixers don't care if he comes over this year or not, as they have no plans to be good for a few seasons anyway.
