Tristan Vukcevic, a 7-foot center with KK Partizan in Serbia, has reportedly declared for the 2023 NBA draft, according to Jonathan Givony of ESPN.

Vukcevic, who was born in Italy, is averaging 5.8 points and 2.5 rebounds on 38% shooting from 3-point range in 38 games across EuroLeague and Adriatic League competition. He also previously spent time with Real Madrid in the ACB league in Spain.

The 20-year-old is highly touted for his ability as a scorer and shooter. He has shown that ability throughout the season, including a 25-point outburst on Jan. 2. He also can handle the ball and push the break while finding teammates on the move.

Vukcevic is considered a second-round pick this year given his offensive ability. Like several other international prospects, Vukcevic will likely arrive in the U.S. later in the pre-draft process with KK Partizan set to begin the playoffs next week.

The NBA draft will take place on June 22.
