RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

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.
