After an impressive season with UNICS Kazan, Maurice Ndour has a deal with Valencia, as Eurohoops sources confirmed.

The Senegalese big man, who was also a member of the Knicks in the past, has played in six EuroLeague games with Real Madrid back in the 2015-16 season. He returned to Europe in the summer for 2017 for UNICS, winning the VTB League defensive player of the year award last season.

In his first six EuroLeague appearances, he averaged just 1.7 points and 1.2 rebounds per game, however after the experience of three seasons in the States and also with UNICS, he is expected to be one of the standouts of Valencia.
