Malik Newman has received interest from professional leagues in China and Spain, according to his father Horatio Webster.
“We have,” said Webster when asked if he and his son have heard from professional teams overseas. “One time he asked me about what it would be like overseas and then another time, he says ‘No dad I’m not going to do that.’ Of course I’m not going to make him do it.”
Emmanuel Mudiay reportedly signed for more than $1 million with Guangdong Southern Tigers, plus signed an endorsement deal with Under Armour. Webster told Scout that a similar figure has been tossed around to his son.
“We are talking around $1 million,” Webster said. “They’ll sell you on getting a shoe contract so you’d probably leave there with $1.5 or $2 million.”
Newman, a 6-3 shooting guard, is considering Kansas, Kentucky, LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and NC State.
Newman is ranked No. 4 in the incoming college class of 2015 by ESPN.
