Bouna Ndiaye, the agent for Mavs center Ian Mahinmi, is not exploring overseas opportunities for his client right now, he told HoopsHype.
“We’re going to wait until October 1,” Ndiaye said. “If training camps are not in sight in the NBA then, I will look for deals for him in Europe.”
According to Ndiaye, teams from France and Spain have already inquired about Mahinmi, but he’s not offering him to any club at the moment. That will likely change in a couple of weeks.
“He’s under contract with the Mavericks, so any deal would have to include an NBA out with a zero buyout,” Ndiaye said. “We’re not signing if teams require a buyout.”
Mahinmi averaged just 3.1 ppg and 2.1 ppg with Dallas this season, but was pretty effective in limited playing time with the team in the Finals.
Ndiaye got deals with foreign clubs early in the summer for clients Timofey Mozgov (Khimki Moscow) and Nicolas Batum (Nancy).
