Report: Mo Bamba tells Grizzlies not to draft him

Mo Bamba

One report says that NBA Draft prospect Mo Bamba has told the Memphis Grizzlies not to draft him.

Draft Express’ Jonathan Givony joined John Martin on 92.9 ESPN Radio in Memphis on Tuesday and told the host about Bamba’s efforts to stonewall the Grizzlies. Givony reported that Bamba refused to work out for the Grizzlies, share his medicals with them, and told them he would prefer not to play for them.

The Grizzlies hold the No. 4 overall pick, and Bamba is considered to be a likely top-10 pick.

As a freshman at Texas, Bamba averaged 12.9 points, 10.5 rebounds and 3.7 blocks per game. Memphis should have plenty of options with the No. 4 pick even without Bamba on the board. They also have the option to trade the pick, which is something they reportedly are considering.
