Gabriele Procida, a 6-foot-7 forward from Fortitudo Bologna in Italy, has declared for the 2022 NBA draft, his agency, Sigma Sports, announced this week.

Procida, who was born in Italy, is averaging 7.1 points and 3.1 rebounds on 41.1% shooting from 3-point range in 24 games this season. He produced perhaps his best game of the year on Dec. 13 after recording a season-high 19 points and seven rebounds.

He also has previous experience with the Italian national team.

Procida previously debuted with the senior team at the 2022 EuroBasket qualifier and had 10 points and three rebounds in a loss to North Macedonia. He also played in the 2019 FIBA U18 European Championship, averaging 13.1 points and 4.6 rebounds.

Procida is considered to be a potential second-round pick this year. He previously tested the pre-draft process last year but elected to return to Italy for one more season. He has great athleticism and is highly touted as a 3-and-D prospect.

The NBA draft will take place on June 23.
