Atoumane Diagne

Updated as of 6/7/2020, scouting report written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-11
Weight: 230
Country: Senegal
Professional Team: CSP Limoges
Classification: International ’98
Birthdate: 12/31/1998

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Strong finisher around the basket
Adequate low post scorer
Excels at scoring on hustle plays
Solid rebounder
Good shot blocker
Solid athlete
Played in some of the toughest professional leagues

Cons:

Needs to improve his face-up game
Needs to improve his free throw shooting
Needs to improve his playmaking skills
Can be too passive on offense
Can tend to have lapses defensively
Tends to be quite foul prone
Limited game action at the highest levels of pro ball

Summary:

Atoumane Diagne is an athletic big man that played in the French Jeep Elite and in the Eurocup this season.  He possesses a good ability to finish plays around the basket, and he also can rebound and block shots, but he will need to improve his jump shot and be a more focused defender in games.  Right now, he may be a borderline second round prospect, as he may project to be a defensive specialist in the NBA.
