Rayan Rupert Declares For NBA Draft
French wing Rayan Rupert has declared as an Early Entry Candidate for the 2023 NBA Draft. Rupert will turn 19 years old ahead of the draft in June.
The 6-foot-6 wing played this season for the New Zealand Breakers in Australia’s NBL. Rupert averaged 6.8 points and 2.4 rebound in 18.1 minutes per game. His season was impacted by a broken wrist on his shooting hand that he suffered in November.
Rupert is projected to be a mid-first-round pick in the 2023 NBA Draft. Some mock drafts have him being selected in the late-lottery, while others have him being selected in the early-20s.
