Rocco Zikarsky signed with the Brisbane Bullets as part of the Australian National Basketball League Next Stars program.
Zikarsky was one of the top international prospects for his class.
“I decided that the Next Stars opportunity was just too good a fit. Being able to train daily with my Under-17 Australian national team coaches, alongside one of my idols Aron Baynes, in my hometown, for my home club, in the NBL, with my family close by, is a dream come true,” Zikarsky told ESPN.
The 17-year-old Zikarsky will not be eligible for the NBA Draft until 2025.
