Hamidou Diallo

Position: SG                        College: Kentucky            Class/YOB: Freshman

Height: 6’6                          Weight:                197                         Wingspan: 7’0

 

Strengths:

  • Top-of-the-line run and jump athlete.
  • Good slasher. Gets by defenders and can sky over help defenders.
  • Should be a plus defender. Solid length. Isn’t always impactful, but had games at Kentucky where he locked down other wings.
  • Freak in the open court. Due to his bounce and burst, he is a problem in transition.

Weaknesses:

  • Suspect shooting. Percentages took a serious hit as the year progressed. Doesn’t have confidence in it.
  • Poor passer. Doesn’t have a feel for making plays for others.
  • Struggles to finish over length. Shouldn’t be an issue with his athleticism, but he misses some point blank looks when there is size around.
  • Lack of effort. Fell out of Coach Cal’s grace by the end of the year. Will he put in the work to become a viable NBA player.
