WARREN, NJ, June 1, 2017 – Ted Kapita, a North Carolina State University big man who was a freshman in the 2016-2017 season, has chosen to be represented by InterperformancesUSA (IPZ), the company announced today.

A native of Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, the 6-foot-8 forward is an early entrant in the 2017 NBA Draft.

The freshman shot 60.8 percent from the field to go along with an 82.1 percent success rating from the stripe. Additionally, Kapita pulled down more than 10 percent of the available offensive boards while on the court.

“I signed with IPZ because they make it all about the player; the player comes first,” said Kapita. “They have already made me feel so comfortable. I can’t wait to begin my professional career knowing that IPZ has my back.”

“Ted is not only a tough kid, but he’s also an extremely hard worker,” said IPZ’s Managing Director of Basketball Shawn Farmer. “Throughout his freshman year, there were flashes of brilliance – especially his performance against Duke – and that’s the type of player Ted is. He takes the utmost pride in bettering his game.”
