Desagana Diop E-mail

2001 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Huge standing at 7-foot and weighing 300 pounds Diop takes up a good amount of space ... Good feel around the basket is starting to learn how to use the glass on his hook shots and most importantly using both hands to score ... Excellent shot-blocker rarely bites on fakes and has long arms to go with quick leaping ability ... Very good rebounder owns a good set of hands that can scrape rebounds and even get rebounds out of position ... Runs the floor well although not nearly as fast as high school chum Tyson Chandler ... Has really started to develop some good post moves even adding a turnaround jumper ... Coach able has improved remarkable considering that he has only really played organized basketball for the past 2 years ... Has loads of raw untapped potential something that Gm's and scouts crave ...

Weakness: Really needs to lose some weight because I personally think he plays way better at 265-270 pounds ... Offensively raw at this point has basically gotten away with being bigger than the competition ... Has a terrible tendency that most young centers have and that is putting the ball on the floor for either a put-back or lay-up which allows smaller players to interfere or worst yet steal the ball ... Fundamentals are far from polished although he has gotten considerably better than he was 3 years ago ... Doesn't possesses the best stamina this could be could be a function of him hauling around more weight (310) like I said if he loses some weight except this problem to subside ... Has to learn when to defend aggressive as he can become foul prone on some occasions during a game ...
