NBA Comparison: Bob Lanier Strengths: Sagana Diop is a very athletic big man. he’s close to 300 pounds and runs the floor like a small forward. he’s very fast. coming from senegal, africa, he’s only been playing competitive basketball for a few years so he figures to get a lot better. right now his best asset is his defense. he can hold opposing centers virtually scoreless with his smothering style of defense. he is a very good shot blocker, and can also help out and block other opposing players shots. Weaknesses: he is not super polished offensively. he has soft touch around the basket but just hasn’t developed the post moves to where they are automatic. there are very few centers in the nba game with his combination of strength, speed, and athleticism. Amazingly agile and athletic for a 7 foot 310 pound center. Runs the floor very well. Still very raw offensively but the makings are there. Shows soft touch around the cup. Super strong, very good defender with great shotblocking instincts. Guarded Tyson Chandler twice last season and ate him up the first matchup, Chandler had a much better game the second time around but rarely scored over Diop. (Pronounced JOP).
