Cheikh Samb is being tested by Real Madrid

According to, Cheikh Samb(2.16-C) is being tested by Real Madrid. The Senegalese center will be replacing the injured Darjus Lavrinovic(2.12-PF/C) and Tomas Van Der Spiegel(2.16-C) in the paint, if his tryouts are successful.

The 24-year old Senegalese center tried his luck in the NBA but only managed to play 22 games last season for 3 different teams(New York Knicks, Denver Nuggets, LA Clippers). His only memorable contribution was in the D-League playing for the Colorado 14ers, where he averaged 13.3 points 7.6 rebounds and 4.1 blocks in 9 games. If Samb manages to convince Messina about his contribution in the paint then Real will offer him a contract.
