Khalifa Diop is an athletic, energetic big man that can score in the post, and he also is a very good rebounder. He can finish plays above the rim, and he also can play solid position defense. He will need to improve his face-up game and passing ability, but he could project to be a rotational big man for a team in the NBA.
