The inaugural weekly post keeping you up to date on your favorite Sixers prospects playing overseas.

This is the first installment of "Sixers Overseas", your weekly update on 76ers prospects who are spanning the globe, from Turkey to Australia and everywhere in between

Jordan McRae

The Sixers second round pick in 2014 is doing his best to make a name for himself in the land down under. McRae scored 13 points on 4-10 shooting in Melbourne United's 92-81 loss, and pulled down four rebounds. He would come back with a much better performance on Sunday, leading all scorers with 32 points on 11-19 shooting (1-5 3PT) in an 88-75 win over the Wollongong Hawks. McRae also threw down a rather emphatic 360 dunk, currently being hailed as the best play in the NBL thus far this season.

He's the leading scorer in the NBL right now, averaging 22.6 points per contest.

Dario Saric

Saric hasn't seen competition since October 27th, where he stuffed the stat sheet with 15 points (4-4 FG), 5 rebounds, and 4 assists in a 93-70 win against domestic opponent Tofas. Since then, he's sat out the last two games with an ankle injury. Anadolu Efes is back in action on Thursday, as they play Nizhny Novgorod in Euroleague action.

Arsalan Kazemi

Kazemi's squad, Chinese team Chongqing Fly Dragon, played their first regular season action Sunday against Shanxi Zhongyu. The 2013 2nd round pick had an impressive CBA debut, dropping 11 points (3-3 FG) to go with 14 rebounds and six assists against the likes of former New York Knicks big man Jeremy Tyler. Chongqing is back in action on Wednesday, and Kazemi should be in the starting lineup once again.

Vasilije Micic

The 52nd overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, the Serbian point guard finally broke through for German club Bayern Munich. In just 17 minutes of action off the bench, Micic dropped 23 points, including 4-5 from beyond the arc in a win over the Walter Tigers (Euro teams have the best names). Micic has been relatively limited offensively this season, but Sunday's performance further affirms the thought he could be an effective backup point guard in the NBA,
