    Canadian guard Karim Mane will remain in the 2020 NBA Draft, ESPN reported Thursday.

    Mane, who was born in Senegal before emigrating to Montreal as a child, is eligible for the draft as an international player. He turned 19 last May.

    The 6-foot-5, 190-pound point guard is ranked as the No. 17 combo guard and No. 131 overall player in the Class of 2020.

    Mane was considering Alabama, DePaul, Marquette, Michigan State and Pittsburgh before opting to stay in the draft.

    He began to emerge as a high-major prospect at the FIBA U19 World Championship in Greece last summer where he averaged 11.7 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.1 assists with eight steals in seven games.

    The NBA Draft was recently moved from its original June 25 date and has been rescheduled for Oct. 16 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
