2013 NBA Draft, Minnesota Timberwolves Draft Pick: Gorgui Dieng, Center, Louisville

Gorgui Dieng

Center from Louisville


I think Dieng will be a fine starter in this league for many years. He can already knock down an 18-footer at the top of the key, he's an above average shot blocker and a very hard worker. He'll take some heat off of Kevin Love, banging in the paint. This balances out their gamble on Shabazz Muhammad. I like it.
