JFOUND: Traore, Franck [MC2007] “can fly a plane”



Every summer, Toronto Raptors GM Masai Ujiri travels to Africa to train young players. The goal: to change the continent.

Behind him, the camp’s six foreign coaches stand in a line. Ujiri turns to them as he finishes telling the kids just how hard it is to make the NBA, how only one player in the program’s 12-year history, the seven-foot-one Solomon Alabi, has done it. He notes that not a single one of the coaches played in the league, then adds himself to the tally, because he didn’t make it either. “But all of them used basketball as a tool,” he says, employing a GOA slogan. “And basketball took them places.”

He gestures at Franck Traore, anchoring the left end of the line of coaches, and tells the kids that Franck was born in Burkina Faso, that he went to the U.S. for high school, played Div. I ball at Manhattan College and now works for NBA Africa. “This big-ass dude can fly a plane,” Ujiri adds to close out the resumé. “I wouldn’t get on it, but he can fly a plane.”
