Potentially good news about Diallo- NBA Draft.
It’s still really early but this is around the time scouts have had a chance to really form opinions on guys.
Diallo in the latest Mock Draft from ESPN’s Chad Ford had him dropping from 13 to 28. I tend to take what Ford says with confidence only because he does reach out to GM’s about what they think. Ford isn’t a wizard but at least you get some insight and not guesses.
Diallo has been horrible for Kansas in the early going, and unlike with Labissiere, scouts can’t point to a skill that would be unleashed in a different system.
Diallo’s strength has always been that he works hard and plays defense. But he is a below-average offensive player and that has really shown early for Kansas.
Scouts are still very intrigued, but everyone I spoke with felt he needed at least one more full year of college ball.
May we see year 2 if this continues??
