Olympiacos forward Aleksej Pokusevski has declared for the 2020 NBA Draft, the player announced on Twitter.

The Serbia-born Pokusevski, 18, spent most of the season playing for Olympiacos B’ team in the Greek Second Division. He often joined the senior team to help with practices in light of injury problems and was named to the 12-man roster in a couple of EuroLeague games.

Standing at 7 feet tall, Pokusevski is considered a positionless player who can operate from multiple spots of the floor and has the skill and passing aptitude of a guard.

In an interview with Eurohoops, Olympiacos coach Giorgos Bartzokas expressed his belief that Pokusevski will be picked. The player is projected to be a late first-round pick by Bleacher Report’s latest mock draft.
