NEWS | 05/12/2015The Senegalese power forward averaged 9.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2 blocks during the NBA Summer League.
The Senegalese player is extremely fleet-footed and a quick mover. Strong on the rebound and an intimidating presence (7' 3'' long arm span), Ndour is also a reliable shooter from downtown. At 23 years of age he is an international player and represented his country during the 2014 World Cup in Spain, where he came up against some of his new team-mates like Rudy, Reyes, Llull and Sergio Rodríguez.
Makes impression at Ohio University
Ndour honed his talents in the USA although he also spent time in Japan when he was starting out (Okayama Gakugeikan High School, in 2011). After being drafted by Monroe College in New York, he took the step up to Ohio University two years later. He became one of the team's best players during his two seasons at Ohio and was included in the All-Mac Second Team in 2014 and 2015, and averaged 16.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.1 blocks and 1.6 assists per game during his final year with the team.
While he was not drafted by the NBA, he did take part in the 2015 Summer League in Las Vegas with the New York Knicks, racking up 9.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2 blocks on average in the process, and also managed to notch up 23 points during a win over the Sixers. He signed for the Dallas Mavericks but never made his competitive debut for the team. He now makes his way to Spain to bolster Real Madrid's inside play.
