Official: Former Louisville center Anas Mahmoud signs for Zamalek


Former center has signed for Zamalek Club, the Cairo based club announced on Saturday.

The move will be the start of his professional basketball career, as the 7’0″ center previously played for four years at Louisville.

After not being selected in the 2018 NBA Draft, Mahmoud played for the Memphis Grizzlies in the Summer League; however, he did not sign a deal with an NBA team.

Mahmoud has signed for a two year deal, and will likely star for both Zamalek and for the Egyptian National Team as they resume qualifying for the FIBA World Cup in September.
