Sergey Karasev Out of 2013 Draft?

Sergey Karasev, a highly touted 19-year-old forward from Russia, likely won't enter the 2013 draft, according to's Scott Howard-Cooper. Projected to be taken somewhere late in the first round by, the 6'7" Karasev is one of the better European prospects, and his absence will surely hurt the overseas crop for possibly the second year in a row. 

Despite his age and inexperience, Karasev was a member of Russia's 2012 Olympic National team, which impressed in London with a roster full of NBA talent. He currently plays for Triumph Lyubertsy in the Russian Professional League.
