The 25 Worst Foreign Players in NBA History

11. Mamadou N'Diaye

Stats: 3.8 PPG 3.3 RPG 0.9 BPG
Teams: Raptors, Mavericks, Hawks, Clippers
Career: (2001-2005)
Country: Senegal

The Senegalese center's basketball career wasn't all bad—he did, after all, break Charles Barkley's career blocks record during his time at Auburn—but it was, for the most part, completely forgettable. The Nuggets used a first round pick on N'Diaye in 2000, but he would never play a game for Denver as he was traded in January of 2001 to the Raptors. FYI, he's not to be confused with the other Senegalese center named Mamadou Ndiaye who just graduated from dominating the California high school leagues. Here's hoping that he'll fare better than the first Mamadou.
