The memory remains indelible. On June 23, in the flamboyant Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, Ismaël Kamagate was called up to 46th position in the NBA Draft by the Detroit Pistons. Unfolding his 2.11 m, he joined the stage and officially entered the world of the NBA. But for his big debut in the big North American league with the Denver Nuggets (where he was quickly transferred), we will have to wait a little longer. His franchise, which already has a complete interior sector with in particular the brilliant Nikola Jokic, preferred to leave him in an incubator at home, at Paris Basketball. To the delight of his club.
