After being selected by the New York Knicks in the first round, 17th overall, in the 1990 NBA Draft, Mustaf played in the NBA from 1990 to 1994 with the Knicks and the Phoenix Suns, after which he played professionally in Europe. He retired in 2001, last playing with Altay Kartal Makarna of the Turkish Basketball League.
On July 22, 1993, Mustaf's girlfriend at the time, Althea Hayes, was murdered by Levonnie Wooten, Mustaf's cousin. At the time, Mustaf was considered a link to her murder, but not necessarily a suspect. However, it was alleged that Hayes didn't want $5,000 for an abortion and Mustaf paid Wooten for the murder, claiming that he owed Wooten a favor. Ultimately, Mustaf settled with the Hayes' family's lawsuit in 1998, paying them $50,000–$100,000.
Mustaf is the chief executive officer and president of Street Basketball Association based in Mitchellville, Maryland. He is the former sports ambassador for Gambia, professional NBA Blogger for Supersport/Multivision, Executive Director of the Take Charge Juvenile Diversion Program and Founder/Head basketball coach of the Take Charge Pride AAU Organization. He was also a three-time Parade All American (along with Shawn Kemp and Alonzo Mourning). He participated in the Capital Classic and McDonald's All-Star Games.
