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.
