The Division A section of the U18 European Championship is considered the highlight of the summer for international scouts, media and fans, as it has a rich history of showcasing the top prospects in Europe right before they graduate from the junior to the senior level of basketball -- just as most them become NBA draft eligible for the first time. A total of 107 players have been drafted from this event since 2000, making it one of the most fruitful tournaments scouts can attend to evaluate a large number of NBA prospects. Some of the more recognizable names have included Kristaps Porzingis, Tony Parker, Marc Gasol and Rudy Gobert.

This year's A division, hosted in Ventspils, Liepaja and Riga, Latvia, was won by Serbia (for the second year in a row).

Here's our look at the top 10 NBA prospects from the tournament.
