HoopsHype Sergey Karasev rumors
Vladimir Spivak: Sergey Karasev ('93) of BC Triumph Moscow Region is entering 2013 NBA draft, confirmed by different sources. To become official soon. Twitter
Some NBA teams being told by people close to Sergey Karasev that the Russian SF will not be in the 2013 draft.... Not a great surprise because Karasev is only 19 and has a chance to develop into more of a prospect than being on the bubble for the first round. But if the early word holds, the draft has lost one of the better candidates from Europe. Barring a mass withdrawl, though, 2013 could be a decent bounceback for overseas impact after minimal influence last June. Rudy Gobert of France, a possibility for late-lottery, and Dario Saric of Croatia lead the way. Sulia
And who knows, perhaps soon Shved will serve a similar role to another wide-eyed countryman that makes his way to the NBA. “Sergey Karasev might be the next [one],” Kirilenko said of the 6-foot-7, 19-year-old shooting guard who averages 18.7 points and 6.3 rebounds for Triumph Lyubertsy in the Russian Professional Basketball League. “He might be joining us soon.” NBA.com
