2019 Fantasy Outlook
The second-round pick played a minimal role in his first NBA season, but he flashed a lot of upside with his freak athleticism, most notably winning the Slam Dunk Contest. The Kentucky product averaged 3.7 points and 1.9 rebounds in 10.3 minutes, appearing in 51 games. His per-36 numbers were encouraging, as he averaged 13.0 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.1 combined blocks/steals. With Paul George and Russell Westbrook gone, there are plenty of minutes and opportunities available for Diallo to see his role expand. He'll compete for playing time as a reserve wing with the likes of Dennis Schroder, Terrance Ferguson and Abdel Nader. It's reasonable to expect a bump in playing time and production for Diallo in his second season, but he's not on the fantasy radar in standard leagues yet. He should be reserved for deep leagues as a late-round pick with upside. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Diallo was born in Queens, New York in 1998. He is the son of Marima and Abdoulaye Diallo and has three siblings. For his first two years of high school, he played at John Browne HS in Flushing, New York. After garnering attention at the 2015 Under Armour Association Circuit and the NBPA Top 100 and Adidas Nations camps, Diallo transferred to Putnam Science Academy in Putnam, Connecticut before his junior season. He was heavily recruited by six universities and ultimately choose Kentucky. During his rookie NBA season, he hosted Hami Diallo's Community Day in Flushing, giving back to his community with a "day full of giveaways, basketball games and music". You can follow Diallo on Twitter (@hamidoudiallo) and Instagram (@hami.diallo).

College/International Summary

Diallo's college career consisted of a single year at the University of Kentucky. He is currently one of four Wildcats from the 2017-18 roster to play at the NBA level. Diallo averaged 10.0 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists while starting all 37 games during his redshirt freshman season at Kentucky. The guard was named SEC Freshman of the Week after a 20-point, three-steal effort versus Virginia Tech. He also led the Wildcats in scoring in four games and in steals six times. During Kentucky's second-round NCAA Tournament win over Buffalo, Diallo made a career-high nine shots and added eight boards, two blocks and a steal. He was selected by the Nets with the 45th overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft before being traded twice and signing with the Thunder several weeks later.

Career night in loss
GOklahoma City Thunder
August 14, 2020
Diallo totaled 27 points (10-22 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one block in 40 minutes during Friday's 107-103 loss to the Clippers.
ANALYSIS
Diallo made the most of his opportunity, setting new career highs in both points and rebounds. While he's not going to see this kind of playing time on the regular, he could still find himself in a somewhat favorable position heading into the playoffs. Luguentz Dort (knee) could miss at least a couple of games, potentially opening up some minutes for Diallo. Nonetheless, he is not a player to target in playoff fantasy leagues at this point.
