French prospect Zaccharie Risacher has declared for the 2024 NBA Draft, he told ESPN's Jonathan Givony.

Risacher is a potential top-five selection and is projected at No. 4 in theScore's mock draft.

"It's always been my dream to get to the best league in the world," Risacher told Givony. "I've been putting the work in for this since I was a kid."

The 6-foot-10 wing is a 3-and-D player with excellent length and a 39% clip from beyond the arc while playing in France's top league. He's averaging 10.4 points in 23 minutes per game this season.

"There are a lot of things I can bring an NBA team," Risacher said. "First of all - my No. 1 strength is my shooting. Then my defensive ability after that. And lastly, my ability to do what's asked of me, using my versatility - I can rebound, handle the ball if needed, finish above the rim, pass the ball. Whatever you ask me to do, I will do it and do it well."

Risacher will hope to hear his name called early on draft night, which is split between two days from June 26-27.
