After watching the two rounds of the NBA Draft go by without hearing his name called, Sagaba Konate may get a shot at an NBA career, according to a report from The Athletic.

As first reported by Michael Scotto, the Toronto Raptors have reached a deal with Konate as an undrafted free agent. 

Although the exact details of the contract have not yet been reported, the Mali native and former Mountaineer will likely get a chance at the NBA Summer League with the newly-crowned Toronto Raptors.

Konate played three seasons for West Virginia under Bob Huggins, where he blocked a school-record 191 shots while averaging 8 points and 5.5 rebounds. His college career ended after a shortened junior season which saw him lead the team in scoring despite playing eight games while sidelined with a knee injury.
