With just a few days left to declare for the 2014 NBA Draft, another international prospect has decided to enter the draft.
According to Jonathan Givony of Draft Express, Serbian center Nikola Jokic has decided to enter the draft.
After a strong Hoop Summit, Serbian big man Nikola Jokic (6’11, 1995) will declare for the 2014 Draft, his agent @MiskoRaznatovic tells us.

As Givony points out, Jokic was impressive at the Nike Hoop Summit, which likely led to his decision to enter the draft.
The 6’11, 253-pound Jokic is just 19 years old and KK Mega Vizura of the Adriatic League in Serbia. He averaged 11.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 blocks per game in 25.0 minutes per game this season.
According to Draft Express, he is the 45th-best prospect, the sixth-best international prospect born in 1995 and is projected to go 42nd in their latest mock draft.
Should Jokic have a change of heart, he has until June 16 to withdraw from the draft.
