In college, Diakite improved his scoring and rebounding averages in each season that he played. As a senior at Virginia, Diakite averaged 13.7 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. Additionally, he shot 47.8% from the floor, including 36.4% from three.
Dominating the G League
After going undrafted, Diakite signed a two-way contract with the Milwaukee Bucks. He was assigned to the NBA G League and has been playing with the Lakeland Magic. So far, he has dominated the G League, averaging 18.5 points and 10.3 rebounds. Additionally, he is averaging 2.1 blocks and 2.1 assists per game. What is most impressive, though, is his shooting. Diakite is shooting a ridiculous 58/50/75 so far, prompting the Bucks to call him up.
