As reported by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, former Iowa State standout forward, Georges Niang, has signed with Wasserman for his 2016 NBA Draft representation. He will be represented by Thad Foucher and Makhtar Ndiaye.
The 6-foot-8, 230 pound Massachusetts native finished his four-year career in Ames, IA with a senior year average of 20.5 PPG, 6.2 RPG and 3.3 APG. He averaged 15.9 PPG, 4.4 RPG and 3.1 RPG for his career. He increased his minutes per game each year from 24.7 as a freshman to 32.9 as a senior.
His career as a Cyclone saw him receive many national awards including: Consensus second-team All-American (2016), Third-team All-American – AP, NABC (2015), Karl Malone Award (2016), 2x First-team All-Big 12 (2015, 2016), Third-team All-Big 12 (2014), Big 12 Tournament MVP (2015), and Big 12 All-Rookie team (2013).
After his junior year in 2015, Niang considered declaring for the 2015 NBA Draft, but instead decided to return for his senior year by saying, “I was weighing it, but I want to be loyal to the program and didn’t want to go out this way (after a first round loss in the NCAA Tournament). I didn’t want to leave my mark like that.” After the career he had, in which the Cyclones became a perennial Big 12 contender, Niang’s mark has been left.
