European standout and projected No. 1 pick Zaccharie Risacher has entered the 2024 NBA Draft, he told ESPN on Monday.

The 6-foot-10 Spaniard is averaging 10.4 points and 3.4 rebounds and shooting 39 percent from 3-point range for the French league team JL Bourg.

“It’s always been my dream to get to the best league in the world,” Risacher told ESPN. “I’ve been putting the work in for this since I was a kid. JL Bourg has given me an incredible opportunity to showcase what I can do. It’s been the perfect place to start my young career. I’m really grateful to have the opportunity to play for this organization.”

Risacher, 19, is the son of former Olympian Stephane Risacher.

The draft is scheduled for June 26-27. The NBA Draft Lottery is scheduled for May 12.
