Summary:
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 go in the second round range for the 2022 draft.
