Senegalese pivot Ibou Dianko Badji (216 cm) will play in the second American league for the 2022-2023 season. He signed up with the Milwaukee Bucks learned from wiwsport.
Best rebounder of CAN U18 and revelation of the U19 World Cup in 2020, Ibou Dianko Badji continues to climb the ladder. After a good run in Spain, the pivot who will celebrate his 20th birthday next month has signed up with Milwaukee.
With an Exhibit 10 as his contract, he will play next season with Wisconsin Herd, the Bucks’ G-League affiliate club. This type of contract means that the player is affiliated with the franchise with specific clauses if the player remains in the G-League or not. Ibou Badji trained with the first team today during the training camp.
Last season, Ibou Badji played in LEB Oro (the second Spanish division). With Forca Lleida CE he played 37 games for an average of 19.9 per game.
After the signing of Khalifa Diop in Cleveland, the Senegalese agent Omar Sow still manages a good transfer with a hope of Senegalese basketball. It’s a new chapter for Ibou Dianko Badji who was not retained during the past draft.
