Montreal native Karim Mane will remain in the upcoming NBA Draft, per ESPN's Jonathan Givony.

Mane, who submitted the necessary paperwork in April, has signed with an agent to solidify his spot as a member of the 2020 NBA Draft class.

"I sent in my paperwork, but I am keeping my options open as far as college," Mane told Givony back in April.

"I want to hear directly from teams. If I can get a guarantee I'll be drafted, I will probably need to think about staying in."

Mane is the number two prospect in Canada for the class of 2020, according to North Pole Hoops. The 6-foot-5 point guard played at Vanier College in Montreal this past season. He jumped on the NBA radar after a strong showing at the FIBA U19 World Championship in Greece.

Due to his international status and having turned 19 last year, he is eligible for the draft.

"All my options are open," he said in April. Mane received offers or interest from Florida, Oklahoma, Marquette, Michigan State, Wake Forest and Pittsburgh.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the draft, which was originally scheduled for Thursday, June 25, 2020, has been postponed to Friday, October 16, 2020.
