Georges Niang‘s basketball talents are headed to the Bay Area.

Iowa State’s second all-time leading scorer has signed a partially guaranteed deal with the Golden State Warriors, according to a report by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Niang will most likely spend next season with the Warriors’ G-League affiliate in Santa Cruz.

Niang was taken with the 50th pick in the second round of the 2016 NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers. He averaged 0.9 points and 0.7 rebounds in 23 games with Indiana last season, but was waived by the team on July 14.

The former two-time All-American averaged 19 points, 7.2 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.2 steals in six games with the Pacers’ G-League affiliate in Fort Wayne. He scored 32 points and grabbed 16 rebounds in his final regular season game with the team in April.

Niang is the third Cyclone to sign a new professional contract in the NBA this offseason joining Abdel Nader (Boston) and Monte Morris (Denver).
