Reflecting on his journey, Risacher emphasized the camaraderie and achievements he’s shared with his teammates throughout the season. Despite the demanding schedule and physical toll of over 60 games played, Risacher remains focused and determined to continue his pursuit of excellence.

As the son of former Olympian Stephane Risacher, Zaccharie has long been recognized as a rising star in international basketball. With his remarkable shooting ability, defensive prowess, and versatile skill set, Risacher is poised to make a significant impact at the NBA level.

Looking ahead to the draft, Risacher remains focused on finding the right fit for his NBA career rather than solely aiming for a high draft pick.

The NBA draft is scheduled for June 26 and 27, with Risacher eagerly anticipating the opportunity for the next chapter of his basketball journey.
