Amath M’Baye – A well-rounded player for Karşıyaka

Standing at 2,06m Amath M’Baye is a big man that can do many things very well. He spent last season with Virtus Bologna where he played in all 30 games of the Serie A as well as in all the BCL games for the Italian team. In the Serie A he averaged +27 minutes and scored about 10 points per game. But these basics do not just express what M’Baye is about.


M’Baye went to Oklahoma where he graduated from in 2013. He has been invited to the NBA SL with various teams ranging from the San Antonio Spurs to the LA Clippers for his amazing skill set.

What we appreciate the most of M’Baye while dissecting into about 297 games that we were able to locate across NCAA, NBA SL, Europe (Italy, BCL) and Japanese League games was that he has very high basketball IQ that shows on the court.
