Gorgui Dieng

Minnesota

Position:

Age: 27 (January 18, 1990)


Analysis — August 29, 2016
Dieng is a difficult player to value simply because his role with the Minnesota Timberwolves is hard to define. Immediately overshadowed in the frontcourt by Karl-Anthony Towns, the intriguingly efficient Dieng's best case scenario is to carve out a role for himself as a supplemental production threat in the post. Throw in the return of Nikola Pekovic, however, and it's hard to say for sure that Dieng will land the job as KAT's running mate. Trust that Dieng will complement Towns in the post for years to come, but be wary of Pekovic eating into his role in 2016-17. (AK)
