Bouna Ndiaye Rumors
NBA teams interested in Mejri will have to compete with Euro teams for his services, though. Agent Bouna Ndiaye told HoopsHype they will test the Spanish and European market first – with Real Madrid reportedly in the lead now – and will only look at NBA options second. “I would be happy playing here with a Euroleague or Eurocup team too,” Mejri said. “But the NBA… That would be a dream.”
The Portland Trail Blazers have asked Nicolas Batum’s agent, Bouna Ndiaye, to make sure Batum is in town to take a physical in the coming days, indicating that the team will match Minnesota’s offer sheet of four-years, $46.5 million. At the current moment, Ndiaye says he doesn’t know if the Trail Blazers plan to utilize the full three day window before they match.
“His mind is not there in Portland. Out of that meeting with the Blazers (on Thursday), we hoped they would allow him to live his dream. The best case scenario is a sign-and-trade and we understand that. Hopefully, Paul Allen would never stand in the way of his dream to play for the Timberwolves,” is what Nicolas Batum’s agent, Bouna Ndiaye, told CSNNW.com Saturday evening.
