Latvian prospect Kristaps Porzingis, who plays for Cajasol Sevilla in the Spanish ACB, will declare for the 2014 NBA Draft, according to DraftExpress' Jonathan Givony. Porzingis was projected to be a top-15 pick in the 2015 draft, and could be selected in the first round this year.
The 7'0, 220-pound big man is only 18 years old, and has a smooth-looking outside shot. He is long and lean, but is a project in every sense of the word. He will need to add lots of weight if he is going to be a post player.
Porzingis is averaging 6.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and one block in 14 minutes in 27 games for Cajasol this season. While those numbers are far from mind-blowing, he came off the bench to score 20 points against Real Madrid in early April, shooting 8-for-12 from the field and 2-for-3 from behind the three-point line facing a roster full of ex-NBA players and NBA prospects.
