Wizards Select Hamady Ndiaye With Second Round Draft Pick Obtained From Minnesota

Big East defensive player of the year, Rutgers center Hamady Ndiaye, was selected with the 56th pick in the NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves, who will send his rights to the Washington Wizards. This is the second part of the trade that first sent the rights of the 23rd pick overall, Trevor Booker, to the Wizards.

Hamady Ndiaye is listed at 6-foot-11 and 235 pounds with an impressive 7-foot-4 wingspan. He is known a defensive specialist, averaging 4.5 blocks in his final season at Rutgers. Ndiaye has difficulty scoring but there is no questioning the defensive abilities he brings to the Wizards.
