When Ian Mahinmi was selected 28th overall in the 2005 NBA Draft by the San Antonio Spurs, other teams and league officials were surprised because he wasn't among the 128 players listed in the league's draft guide. Mahinmi has yet to be brought over to the NBA by the Spurs organization and is generally considered a "project" that is a couple of years from competing in the NBA. The Spurs' interest in Mahinmi relates to their need for an athletic big man since David Robinson retired. Playing for the Spurs' 2006 summer-league team at Rocky Mountain Revue, Mahinmi demonstrated his athleticism, but the Spurs' coaching staff is concerned that he is not yet sufficiently "big." He is good at establishing position near the basket, but he has difficulty maintaining position without fouling. The strength and nutrition program at Pau is considered more developed than at Le Havre, and the Spurs intend to have a strength coach monitor his progress.[2] In 2007, he won the French Cup.

Mahinmi, who played the past two seasons for STB LeHavre, of the French professional league, is an explosive player whose skills remain raw.
Mahinmi's selection Tuesday night was even more of a surprise than the selection in 2001 of Tony Parker or the selection in 2004 of Beno Udrih.
Mahinmi said playing in the NBA has been a goal from the first time he saw a game on television in France, even before he began playing.
