Cheikh Samb Rumors

The Skyforce finalized their 10-man roster on Thursday in advance of the season opener Sunday – and top draft pick Cheikh Samb was not on it. While waiting to get a work visa in his native Senegal, the 7-foot-1 center is said to be considering buying out of his NBA D-League contract to sign with a team on another continent. The details are fuzzy. D-League officials claim that he is still under contract and expected to report to Sioux Falls. The Skyforce have yet to speak with Samb, dealing instead with his agent, Marc Fleisher. But when contacted Thursday by the Argus Leader, a rep at Fleisher’s office said that Fleisher does not currently represent Samb, saying it was a “relatively recent” change.
