Former Ohio Bobcats forward Maurice Ndour has found an NBA home.

According to agent Eric Fleisher, Ndour will play with the New York Knicks' Summer League team in Las Vegas. Ndour will begin working out the Knicks immediately.

Fleisher cited Ndour's fit in the Triangle offense and the Knicks' willingness to let him play overseas next season as major reasons as why he signed with Knicks. Fleisher says that Ndour received offers from five other NBA teams for summer league, but the others teams wanted Ndour to play in the NBA's D-League as opposed to playing overseas. .

According to Fleisher, Ndour is currently fielding multiple offers from teams in Europe and will spend next season abroad, but will maintain a relationship with the Knicks while overseas. Ndour currently lives in New Rochelle, New York - just a short drive from the Knicks' training facility.

Ndour spent two years with Ohio after starting his college career at Monroe College in New York. Last year, he averaged 16 points and 8.3 rebounds per game while being named second team All-MAC.

The Las Vegas Summer League kicks off play on July 10 and runs through July 20.
