Moussa Diabate is a very athletic, energetic big man that can make solid hustle plays on both ends of the floor. He thrives as a scorer in transition, and he can also take slower-footed opponents off the dribble to score at the rim. He also is a solid rebounder and shot blocker. He will need to improve his jump shot and continue to improve his playmaking skills. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2022 draft.
