Not a whole lot of Zag action on the final day of the NBA Summer League but some significant news came from the Philadelphia 76ers. It was announced that Filip Petrusev, the 2020 WCC Player of the Year, signed a one-year deal with Anadolu Efes in Istanbul, Turkey. “We think Petrusev is someone who has a real chance to help us down the road. He’ll likely start overseas and be someone who could come over later,” said Philadelphia’s President of Basketball Operations Daryl Morey.
