Dhieu Deng is a very athletic, energetic combo guard that played college ball at Texas-San Antonio last year, and he has been an integral player for the Cape Town Tigers this season in the BAL Qualifiers. He’s a very good defender that can distribute the basketball, but he’s struggled to be consistent with his jump shot over the years. He is a very athletic player that will make hustle plays, and he could project to be a rotational guard that could provide some playmaking and defense if he ends up making his way to the NBA.
