With the NBA Draft just two months away, the class of players entering the pros is starting to get longer and longer. While big college names like Montrezl Harrell, Willie Cauley-Stein and the Harrison twins all deciding to pass on the NBA Draft this year, we do have some notable names entering to take their place.

Perhaps the most popular international name next to point guard Dante Exum is Dario Saric and we learned today that he will be entering the draft this summer.

We saw Saric declare and then renege on his declaration last season. But he appears to be a lottery pick and that has motivated him to enter the draft. It’s believed that Saric can go as high as the No. 8 pick and he’s unlikely to fall past the No. 14 pick.

Saric is a great prospect to get excited about as he’s massive for a small forward and hie height and skill will have plenty of teams interested in taking a chance on him and his pro days will begin in 2014 with one of the teams that find themselves in the lottery this year.
