The Detroit Pistons now have the honor of saying they have the tallest player in the league and since Yao Ming. On Saturday, they signed 7’6 300 pound Mamadou N’Diaye. The 23-year old from UC Irvine went undrafted after averaging 12 points, 7 boards and 2 blocks during his junior year.
The odds are N’Diaye will play with the Pistons D-League affiliates, Grand Rapids Drive, but if he does make the Pistons roster then they might have the biggest frontcourt in NBA history with him, Andre Drummond and Boban Marjanovic.
6’1 OVER 7’6!
N’Diaye was a guest at our last Ballislife All-American game and helped provide one of the best moments when he allowed 6’1 Myree “Reemix” Bowden to jump OVER him.
