Karim Mane Rumors
Back in April, five-star Canadian combo guard Karim Mane placed Pitt in his top five alongside DePaul, Marquette, Memphis and Michigan State. However, Mane then entered the 2020 NBA draft, and although there was initially some doubt he would go through with forgoing college altogether, he decided on Thursday to remain in the draft, according Jonathan Givony of ESPN. “I want to thank all the schools that recruited me over the last couple of years,” Mane told Givony. “Today I’m blessed to let the world know that I decided to pursue my dreams and remain in the 2020 NBA draft.”
Canadian five-star recruit Karim Mane has elected to sign with an agent and keep his name in the 2020 NBA draft, he told ESPN on Thursday. Despite only recently graduating high school, Mane, a guard, is eligible for the draft as an international player who satisfies the NBA’s age requirement, having turned 19 in May of 2019.
Karim Mane has declared for the 2020 NBA Draft but will keep his college eligibility, Jonathan Givony of ESPN reports. According to Mane, “I am not planning on hiring an agent right now. I want to hear directly from teams. If I can get a guarantee I’ll be drafted, I will probably need to think about staying in.”
