Draft Notes

Ousmane Dieng has a bright NBA future. The French point-forward is a great ball handler, play-maker scorer and passer. His NBA role projects as a scoring wing with some primary ball handling responsibility.

He’s got a pull-up game and a knack for scoring from mid range, where he does a really good job of driving off of screens and finding space to get his shot.

He’s a long, lean athlete with great quickness, lateral speed and overall agility.

When you watch him the first word that comes to mind is smooth.
