We told you this was likely coming, but now it looks official.

The agent of Dario Saric told Bourbon Street Shots that his client is pulling out of the draft.

We make decision this morning that we will withdraw Dario from the 2013 draft
Best regards,
Robert Jablan

Saric has until June 17 to change his mind again, that is the deadline to withdraw from the draft.

Saric was projected to be a first round pick, DraftExpress had him going No. 21 although others think he could be as high as a late lottery selection. He’s a vintage European big man — 6’10” but he plays like a small forward. He sees the court well, is a great ball handler and passer. His jump shot could use to be steadier and he needs to get stronger, but there is potential there.

That potential appears headed back to Croatia for another season.

    If he would have stayed in, he wouldn’t have fallen any further than the Mavs at 13, but he could have gone as high as the sixth or seventh pick. I think he should have stayed in. Even if he didn’t play in the NBA this year — and he likely wouldn’t have — his draft slot would be much higher this year than next year, when multiple great prospects will be available.

      I think that is what he was shooting for.. to fall in the draft. He does not want to be part of a rebuilding process.
