WNBA Draft
2022: Rd 3, Pk 29 (NEW YORK LIBERTY)@NYLiberty
SIKA KONE @konesika23 : « This is a dream come true, but in the dream, the draft is just a step. The hard part starts now. This is another step in my young career. It is a joy but also an honor to represent Mali in the WNBA, but also to expand the African family not only in the USA but also by its exposure throughout the entire planet. I feel like I’m jumping from continent to continent, Africa-Europe-America, and that’s fantastic. For me, basketball has no borders.
I would like to thank all those who have believed in me since my beginnings, and first of all my parents who trusted me when I went alone to Spain. I was 14 years old. I always wanted to make them proud. Especially my Mom who is looking at me from heaven today. It was my Mom’s dream for me to play in the WNBA. A thought also for my supporters in Mali, starting with Moussa, my agent Ahmadou Keita (AK Sports Management), my club Gran Canaria, my coaches, my national coaches, my teammates. I have always set high goals for myself and to reach them I have worked hard. I’m sorry I can’t be with you tonight, I’m in Spain with some rehab obligations. I can’t wait to discover my new franchise, New York Liberty@NYLiberty, the city, the fans. I love you guys already. See you soon and thank you so much. »
