There's no shortage of young talent in the 2022 NBA Draft, and that includes international prospect Nikola Jovic.

Nikola Jovic NBA Draft Stock & Projection

Round 1
- Denver Nuggets (No. 21) -1
- San Antonio Spurs (No. 25) - 1
- Dallas Mavericks (No. 26) - 1

Jovic looks like a lock to be a late first-round pick. These three mock drafts all see him going in the early-to-mid twenties, and it's no surprise to see those three teams highlighted as potential landing spots given their success with other international prospects.

Nikola Jovic Stats

2021-22 Mega Basket, Liga ABA
- 11.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.4 blocks, 2.7 turnovers, 1.7 3-pointers, 27.8 minutes per game. 42.8% field goal, 35.6% 3-point shooting.

Jovic made his case as a legit NBA prospect with an impressive season at just 18 years old last season. He showcases an ability to make an all-around impact like other international success stories, stuffing the stat sheet in all areas. Jovic boasts impressive size as a ball-handler at 6-foot-11, which gives him sky-high potential as a playmaker, though he needs to work on his turnovers. Maintaining his solid 3-point shooting in the NBA will help him carve out a role right away.
