View Full Version : Blazers' Second Round Pick (from Mavs) Tanguy Ngombo Lied About His Age?

On Thursday, the Portland Trail Blazers used the No. 57 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft -- acquired from the Dallas Mavericks in the Rudy Fernandez trade -- to select Tanguy Ngombo. The plan was to re-route Ngombo to the Minnesota Timberwolves for cash considerations. There are now questions about Ngombo's real name and age (click through for more information) that potentially impact his draft eligibility.

The Blazers are referring all questions regarding Ngombo's eligibility and age to the NBA's league office, who has neither responded to a request nor issued a statement yet.

If he is ruled eligible, the trade goes through and the Blazers get their cash. If not, it's unclear exactly what will happen. Most likely scenario: the pick would be forfeited without further penalty and the trade would be voided.

WTF? Has this ever happened before? So if he did lie, that means the blazers lose the 57th pick, which was acquired in the trade...WOW.

that is one messed up scenario.
