Clint Capela is expected to declare for the 2014 NBA Draft next week, according to sources.
Capela is a projected first round pick.
"A year ago no one was talking about me and now every day I see news about me," Capela said. "Sometimes, it's strange for me. But I try to stay focused and continue to work hard."
Capela is starting for Chalon and averaging 9.1 points, seven rebounds and 1.8 blocks at just 19 years old.
DraftExpress.com has Capela ranked as the 13th-best prospect in this year's draft.
Capela said it will cost an NBA team $500,000 to get him out of his French contract.
