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.
