Rodions Kurucs has declared for the 2018 NBA Draft.

Kurucs is a probable first round pick as a 6'10 combo forward.

Kurucs has received little playing time with Barcelona.

Kurucs entered the 2017 NBA draft against the wishes of Barcelona but was forced to withdraw at the deadline despite strong interest in the late first round, as his exorbitant buyout, which reportedly was around €4 million, would have made it difficult for him to have joined the NBA immediately.
