Sagaba Konate, West Virginia University’s most elite shot-blocker in program history, competed in the NBA’s Developmental G League Elite Camp today and all signs point to his knee problems being a non-issue now.
Konate finished with a double-double, scoring 11 points and pulling down 12 rebounds. He shot 5-14 from the field and, undoubtedly attempting to prove to NBA Scouts that he has improved his outside game, shot 1-5 from three point range.
