Makhtar Ndiaye Rumors
Ntilikina left Creative Artists Agency for French agent Bouna Ndiaye. The agent is a close family friend of Knicks scout Makhtar Ndiaye, both of whom grew up in France. According to a source, Ntilikina was unhappy with not getting big-enough endorsement deals compared to other lottery picks.
Though a slew of NBA personnel are in nearby Treviso, Italy, for the youth Adidas Eurocamp, Ntilikina met only with the Mavericks. According to a source, Knicks European scout Kevin Wilson and newly hired scout Makhtar Ndiaye are in Treviso.
Per a press release from the company, Wasserman today announced the signing of two NBA Draft prospects – Georges Niang and Stephen Zimmerman. Niang will be represented by agents Thad Foucher and Makhtar Ndiaye and Zimmerman by agent Darren ‘Mats’ Matsubara. Both have signed with Wasserman for representation in all areas.
