Mouhammadou Jaiteh Decides Not To Enter NBA Draft

After intending to declare for the NBA, French center Mouhammadou Jaiteh won’t formally enter his name in the June Draft, a source told RealGM.

Jaiteh had been gauging feedback from the NBA, and the 6-foot-10 prospect ultimately decided to forgo the draft. Jaiteh will likely re-sign in France’s ProA league to continue his development.

RealGM reported on March 25 that Jaiteh would declare for the draft. The 19-year-old also entered the draft process a year ago before pulling out in the weeks before the 60 selections.

Jaiteh averaged 5.4 points and 3.9 rebounds with JSF Nanterre this season.

Mouhammadou Jaiteh To Declare For NBA Draft

French prospect Mouhammadou Jaiteh will declare his name into the June NBA draft and gauge feedback to frame a decision on whether to stay, a source told RealGM.

Jaiteh had submitted eligibility in last yearís draft, before pulling out late in the withdrawing window. Multiple teams late in the first round and early in the second round expressed a significant interest in selecting Jaiteh, but under the condition of stashing the 6-foot-11 big man overseas.

Jaiteh, 19, possesses one more year in which he could withdraw from the draft and plans to approach the process and workouts as if he will most likely remain part of the 2014 class.

Jaiteh has experienced inconsistent play in the European League and Eurocup with JSF Nanterre, where heís received an escalation in competition. Heíll return to the U.S. for training once his teamís playoffs end.

For the season, Jaiteh has averaged 5.2 points and 3.9 rebounds.
