Gorgui Dieng had a quiet offensive night on Friday, finishing a road loss with just six points on 2-of-4 shooting.
Given the shot share of Minnesota’s two young stars, Dieng will have nights like this where he barely sees the ball. It’s his versatility that makes him such a valuable commodity and that shone through tonight as he notched five boards, an assist, two steals and a block. He was overdrafted this year but will always possess top-50 upside. His relative disappointment might drop his draft price over the summer, which will only help shrewd fantasy players in the long run.
