Gorgui Dieng scored eight points on 2-of-4 shooting with six rebounds, one assist, two steals and three blocks in 23 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Nuggets.
Dieng was rated very highly by us in the preseason and we told you guys that he would start out slow. As long as Sam Mitchell doesn’t completely go nuts, and we’re almost sure he can’t do that, then Dieng will see his workload increase as the year goes on. He needs to stay on his current trajectory to reach our early round cumulative grade, but nights like these make us feel pretty good about it.
