Report: Russian wing Nikita Mikhailovskii withdraws name from NBA Draft

Nikita Mikhailovskii, an 18-year-old Russian prospect, has withdrawn his name from the 2019 NBA Draft, per ESPN’s Jonathan Givony.

Mikhailovskii entered the draft in April, and he ranks No. 57 on ESPN’s big board and he ranks No. 95 on CBS’ draft board. On the CBS draft board, Mikhailovskii ranks No. 23 at the shooting guard position. He had until 5 p.m. Monday to withdraw his name from the draft.

The 2019 NBA Draft will be held June 20 in Brooklyn, New York, at the Barclays Center. A 6-foot-8 wing, Mikhailovskii plays for BC Avtodor Saratov. Per Givony, Mikhailovskii has a chance to improve his draft stock at the FIBA U19 World Cup in Crete over the summer.

Last summer Mikhailovskii played in the FIBA U18 European Championship, and he helped lead Russia to fourth place while also earning all-tournament team honors.
