Kaba said in Las Vegas that he was focused on his play in summer league and would discuss his future following the tournament. He said he wanted to use the experience to continue to expand his game and be able to stretch the floor as a big man.
“I’m feeling more comfortable when I’m stretching my game,” Kaba told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I try to get more comfortable in my low-post game and close to the basket because that’s something I’m not used to. I’m still working on it. It’s something I’m working on with the team here because it will help me a lot to have a low-post game.”
Kaba, who has a 7-5 wingspan, played last season for Mega Leks in the Adriatic League. In 25 games, he averaged 10.9 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 24.6 minutes. He had a .507 field goal percentage.
Kaba began his career in France and played for Pau-Orthez in the Pro A league in 2014-15.
