Shareef was not selected in the recent NBA draft.

Shareef missed the 2018/19 season due to heart surgery. He played the last two years for Louisiana State in the NCAA. 

The forward played four games in the NBA Summer League for the Lakers, averaging 4.8 points and 3.8 rebounds in 11.5 minutes on the court.

Ignite specialises in developing young basketball players who get to play against more experienced players in the G-League. Shareef will be working on himself with the aim of trying to continue his career in the NBA.
