Mamadou Ndiaye, the 7-6, 300 pound center out of UC Irvine, will forego his junior season and remain in the NBA Draft. The Senegal native averaged 12.1 points, 7.2 boards and 2.4 blocks last season.
If he gets selected, Ndiaye will be the tallest player drafted since Yao Ming in ’02.
Ndiaye has worked out for the Kings and Lakers, amongst other teams.
