Olivier Sarr: « The NBA game lends itself well to mine »


Even on the phone, we can easily guess that the stars have not left Olivier Sarr’s eyes. Back in Toulouse, with his family, the 23-year-old pivot (2.13 m) takes the time to recharge the batteries. The season of the native of Niort, who grew up in Bordeaux, required a lot of patience, between G-League, NBA, ten-day contracts and a « two-way » contract which did not come to an end. No matter: the former Insep played 22 NBA matches with the Oklahoma City Thunder, the time to prove himself on his last freelance, marked by pretty offensive outings (a record 24 points, a double- double). The spirit already turned towards next season, the interior delivers – and appreciates – how busy his summer will be, with as icing on the cake a summons with the French team in training camp for the next qualifying matches for the World Cup. Before leaving for the United States, Sarr responds to the first media requests, another novelty.
