2022 NBA Draft: How Early Will Ousmane Dieng Go?

The NBA Draft is normally one of the most fun betting events of the season. While this is one of the weirder years in recent memory, I’m absolutely thrilled for all the trade madness we’re about to see. While it's fun to make money and win bets, it's even more fun to watch the future of basketball have their dreams come true right in front of us.

Ousmane Dieng u11.5 Draft Position -135 (Bet $135 to win $100)

Ousmane Dieng is one of the biggest risers we’ve seen throughout the NBA draft.  Dieng, a 6'10 point forward from France who just turned 19-years-old in May has been linked to both the San Antonio Spurs and the New Orleans Pelicans in sharp mock drafts over the last couple days. Dieng has a lot of skills NBA teams will be looking for, he’s a good ball-handler with good playmaking skills for his size, already faced tough defenses in the NBL at a young age, and drastically improved his 3-PT shooting in the second half of the season. Shooting 53% from the field and 37% from 3 over his last 10 games really inspired confidence in teams and helped his draft capital plenty.

Insider @DXContent recently reported he absolutely wowed the Pelicans in pre-draft workouts and is now being mocked there on sites like ESPN & The Ringer. The Spurs are also known for their love of these overseas players, and while they are one of the more tight-lipped teams in the league, I could definitely see them being drawn to his skillset. With both the Wizards and the Knicks possibly trading out of the 10 and 11 spots, I could see teams trading up to those spots to chase that upside. Surrounded by sturdy role players like Johnny Davis, I think teams really could fall in the love with the potential Dieng holds.
