NBA: Philadelphia 76ers May Ship 2nd Round Pick and Former Duck Arsalan Kazemi Overseas

Former Oregon Duck Arsalan Kazemi has already made an impression with his new team, the Philadelphia 76ers, but I’m not sure it’s the right one. According to Philly.com, the former Oregon rebounding machine may head overseas to play this upcoming season.

“He would get a chance to work on his game somewhere else for a year, then [we] would have the opportunity to reaccess where he is later.” -Sixers General Manager Ed Hinkie

Under current NBA rules Philadelphia would retain the rights to Kazemi, and if he does go overseas to play he would not count against their salary cap for the upcoming season.

Kazemi’s skills at the college level his senior year were phenomenal, but it looks like he may not be NBA material just yet. This would give him the opportunity to work with no pressure and be reaccessed for next year.

In his senior year for the Ducks, the 226 pound 6 foot 7 Kazemi played a paramount role in getting Oregon into the Sweet 16 averaging 9.4 points per game along with 10 rebounds per game.
