The Timberwolves expect that the NBA will allow them to keep No. 57 pick Tanguy Nbombo despite a dispute over his age.
Ngombo is 26 years old and should have been ineligible for the draft, but the Wolves have official documentation that Ngombo is 21 and they don't expect to be penalized for (potentially) fraudulent government documents. Regardless of his age, Ngombo isn't going to play in the NBA. Fri, Jul 8, 2011 12:06:00 PM

It has been revealed that Tanguy Ngombo, the Timberwolves No. 57 draft pick, is actually 27 years old.

As pointed out by Jonathan Givony on Twitter, the pick should be invalidated by the NBA because Ngombo isn't eligible -- apparently Quatar citizens "cannot be naturalized if they are over a certain age." He wasn't expected to come to the NBA anyway.

The Wolves acquired No. 57 pick Tanguy Ngombo from the Mavericks in exchange for cash.

Ngombo averaged 19.6 points and 6.6 rebounds for Qatar during the 2010 Asian Games, but he's basically an unknown commodity and we're not expecting to see him in the NBA.
