International prospect Roko Prkacin to withdraw from NBA draft

- Advertisement -

International prospect Roko Prkacin has reportedly removed his name from the NBA draft ahead of the withdrawal deadline, according to Jonathan Givony of ESPN.

Prkacin averaged 13.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists last season with KK Cibona in the Adriatic League. He shot 39.4% from 3-point range and was thought to be one of the more versatile frontcourt players in the draft this year.

His withdrawal from the draft was a bit surprising considering many had him projected to be a late first-round pick. However, by returning to Europe for another season, the 6-foot-9 forward will have the opportunity to further improve his draft stock for next year.

Prospects had until 5 p.m. EST on Monday to withdraw from the draft.

With the withdrawal deadline on Monday, Prkacin was the biggest surprise of those that opted to pull out of contention. He figures to be in contention to be a mid-first-round pick next season with more development and another year of professional experience.

The NBA draft is scheduled to take place on Thursday, July 29.
