2015-16

Before there was Karl-Anthony Towns, there was Dieng, the prospect Minnesota fans clamored to see more of on the court. That wish was granted in 2014-15, with Dieng playing 30 minutes per game over the course of his 73 game appearances last season. His averages of 9.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steal, and 1.7 blocks point to fantasy utility, but Dieng's upside will be capped by his lack of scoring and the heavy competition he will face for minutes with the arrival of Towns and the return of Nikola Pekovic. In the likely scenario, Dieng remains a solid deep league contributor while seeing minutes backing up both Towns and Kevin Garnett. Even in the most optimistic scenario, it's unlikely that Dieng again bursts onto the standard league scene, but if he is given a high-volume of minutes, he can be useful to those formats that reward double-doubles, as well as to owners who seek help in rebounds and blocked shots. On nights that Garnett is out to rest, Dieng becomes an interesting daily fantasy option as well.

2014-15

Gorgui Dieng came on like gangbusters at the end of the 2013-14 season. After languishing on the bench for the first four months of the season, Dieng showed that he could be an impact rebounder and scorer at the center position. In a seven-game stretch in March, Dieng had five double-doubles, including an eye-opening 22-point, 21-rebound performance in a March 20 loss to the Rockets. The former Louisville Cardinal added four more double-doubles in April, including another 20-rebound game against Houston. For the season, Dieng averaged 4.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 0.7 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.8 blocks in 14 minutes per game. He converted 50 percent of his field goals and 63 percent from the charity stripe. It remains to be seen whether the native of Senegal can play next to Nikola Pekovic, who was out with an ankle injury during Dieng's period of productivity. The second-year pro will be in the mix for minutes alongside and behind Pekovic. If coach Flip Saunders determines that Anthony Bennett and Thaddeus Young can't start at power forward, Dieng could be in line for starter's minutes.

2013-14

Dieng, the 21st pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, will be used in a reserve role, but could be a nice fit for the T-Wolves. AT 6-11 with a 7'4 wingspan, he was a strong shot blocker in college (3.8 blocks per 40 minutes), but also improved his mid-range shot his senior season and had good passing skills for a big man (which fits nicely with Minnesota's current big men who can pass). He may not play many minutes as long as Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic are healthy, but he's a player who could develop into a productive backup quickly.
