re: Gorgui Dieng center from Louisville (Posted on 3/9/13 at 8:34 pm to Bigcurly2343)
I'm a big Louisville fan and have been watching Dieng's development from the beginning. The guy has incredible potential. He really has improved his offensive game from a year ago - although he still is a bit hesitant at time to be aggressive offensively above the rim. He has developed a consistent 10-15 jump shot and is a pretty consistent free-throw shooter.
He also has added about 40-50 lbs of muscle since coming over from Senegal. And his defensive game and rebounding ability speaks for itself.
Gorgui Dieng is going to be a very serviceable big man in the NBA and has the potential to be great given that he has only played 5 years of organized basketball. I wish the Hornets/Pelicans could snag him but they would have to somehow get back in the second round.
