Hami Diallo picked with our 45th Pick but traded to OKC

Recommended Posts

Amazing athlete! Super explosive and long. Very interesting pick. I like his potential.

Guy is a development player with good athleticism and defense. Great vertical. Had some big games with Kentucky. Possibly won’t do anything this year because he has to develop his offensive game. Still not bad for a second rounder.

 

heres a profile on him from CBS. Also I read he cannot join the team until after July the 6th due to the Howard trade won’t be official until then.

What a stupid ass decision 

I will be honest, when we picked him I thought wow this is totally anti-Hornets. We don't take high ceiling potential guys who we need to develop...

Why are we hung up on Diallo when Monk and Lamb are on the roster? He wouldn't have played this season and he's the kind of player you can get in future second rounds going forward.

Yes exactly.

If anyone watched Diallo at UK, yes he has some physical tools, but he was borderline unplayable at times during SEC play. He averaged more turnovers than assists for the entire season. And for someone who is lauded as a good shooter he went 33% from 3 point range and 62% from the FT line. I get that he's young and there is upside, but Lord.

So, yea, no thanks. I'm glad we were able to sell the pick for cash or another pick down the road.

I would have liked for us to keep him on our D-League team for a year or two and see what happens. Oh well
