Isaiah Austin, whose NBA career was derailed before it began because of a rare genetic disorder that affects his heart, has been cleared to play basketball again and is mulling several overseas offers.
“He is weighing through his offers,” a source told ZAGSBLOG. “He’s had [overseas] offers as teams were waiting for medical clearance.”
The former Baylor center, who left school after his sophomore season to enter the 2014 NBA Draft, was diagnosed with Marfan syndrome, which affects the body’s connective tissue.
According to the Mayo Clinic, complications from Marfan syndrome can weaken the aorta, the artery that supplies blood from the heart to the rest of the body.
