Article Summary:

You’ll have to decide yourself if he called bank or not:

Dieng showed that he could add some sauce in his offensive game last season too, hitting the one-legged post fade a few times:

One of the advantages of having Dieng is that the Hawks won’t have to play small as much if they want more spacing on the floor. With Dieng not seeing many minutes these past few seasons, it’s hard to judge how effective he can be on the boards, but earlier in his career his was averaging around eight rebounds when given more minutes.

It will be interesting to see what the Hawks will decide to do with Dieng once Okongwu is close to coming back.

With the history of success stretch-fives have with the Hawks, Dieng could be the next on the list to have a solid season in the right system.
