Gorgui Dieng played 26 minutes on Saturday (largely thanks to garbage time), finishing with 15 points, 11 rebounds, one steal, one 3-pointer and two blocks in a blowout loss to the Sixers.
It's almost like Dieng is a good player who just hasn't gotten minutes this year. At this point an offseason move would be the best thing for him, as it's pretty clear that Thibs won't ever give him the nod over the old favorites. Taj Gibson scored seven points with five rebounds in 24 minutes tonight while Nemanja Bjelica scored five points on 2-of-9 shooting in 28 minutes, so there were power forward minutes open and Dieng cashed in. It'd take an injury to get him into the fantasy mix at this point but this is the type of stuff he can provide in the right situation.
