Kristaps Porzingis has pulled out of this month's NBA draft and will return to Europe for the next year, his agent Andy Miller told Yahoo Sports on Sunday night.
Porzingis, an 18-year-old center, had a chance to be a top-20 pick. But Porzingis believes he can go far higher next season.
Porzingis will return to play for Sevilla in the elite Spanish ACB League this season.
Porzingis was most recently slotted to go No. 15 overall by DraftExpress.com.
