Mavericks Sign Maurice Ndour

The Mavericks have signed undrafted forward Maurice Ndour, the team announced via a press release. The length and terms of the arrangement are not yet known, but it’s most likely a training camp deal, though that is merely my speculation.

Ndour comes off of a successful run at the Las Vegas Summer League where he played for the Knicks’ squad. The 6’9″ forward averaged 9.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.0 block, 1.0 steal in 28.3 minutes per contest. The Knicks were reportedly impressed with Ndour, but a dwindling amount of open roster slots kept New York from signing him.  “Maurice was solid, he brought energy and activity to our game,’’ Knicks coach Derek Fisher said. “He showed ability to shoot fairly well and defend, block shots, rebound. He represented himself well. We may not be able to keep him. Our roster’s filling up pretty fast.’’

The 23-year-old native of Senegal spent the last two seasons playing for Ohio University, and his career NCAA numbers are 14.8 PPG, 7.6 RPG, and 1.6 APG. Ndour’s slash line was .498/.388/.757.

    Typical New York knicks always slow to pull the trigger, allways slow to aquire good players. Allways choosing has beens and duds.

    • Adam K

      Copeland, Lin, Novak, Shawne Williams, Galloway – none drafted by the Knicks, and all guys the Knicks gave big minutes to and turned into roleplayers.

    • Chuck Myron

      You never know, though. He looked good in summer league, but that’s such a small sample size. No guarantee this carries over.
