Gorgui Dieng scored 10 points on 2-of-6 shooting (including two threes) with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 23 minutes off the bench on Saturday against the Suns.
Dieng hit all four of his free throws and this was a vintage line for him. There’s not much to say about him that we haven’t already, and over the last month he has brought back top-160 value in 20.8 mpg. That’s the type of ratio that puts him in the conversation for being a stash, but if Nemanja Bjelica returns it could hurt and in general Thibs hasn’t been kind to him. That said, we’ve seen him start slow and be a mid-round value late in the year so there is still a rationale to stash.
