Pape Sy Is Probably Not That Tall

I first found his statistical profile here. He's listed as 190 cm. That's 74.8 inches, or just under 6' 3".

I've since discovered the STB Le Havre website. He's listed as 1.95 m. That's 76.77 inches, or 6' 4.75".

Time to stop worrying about his poor rebounding numbers.

This is a joke right? We didn't really just draft this guy. Do we get some kind of bonus for drafting an imaginary player?

If there was any sort of guaranteed money involved, I'd assume chicanery as has plagued MLB in Latin America.

The Hawks management believes in mythology, and think they've got exclusive knowledge of their recent head coach hire and 53rd pick.

But they must have known Sy's height: he worked out on June 15 and 16

I don't know, he looks taller than 6'4. After seeing him on youtube, he look all of 6'7
