The Jazz got a pretty big player.
This pick was made for the Minnesota Timberwolves and they got a 7’3 center who works hard and could make an impact for the T’wolves. The pure definition of a good role player, Gorgui Dieng will be able to provide the kind of size in the paint that make opposing driving players think twice before trying to posterize. Dieng will be able to work in the Minnesota system and with Ricky Rubio giving him awesome passes on the fly, Dieng will do just fine in the NBA. Its a good success story for the NBA and while he doesn’t have that much of a skill-set in terms of pure talent, he will be the kind of role player we will all hear about twelve years from now.
Draft Grade: B
