2015 Nike Hoop Summit Final Recap
April 11, 2015
Cheick Diallo 12 PTS, 6 REBS (3 offensive), 3 blocks, 5-for-9 FGs in 16 min

The 6' 9 big man only played 16 minutes after starting the game, but made a few impressive plays as a finisher, offensive rebounder and shot blocker that make it easy to see him as a high-motor, energy big man in the NBA. He blocked three of the US Team's 12 shots, finished a big dunk in transition, and showed good activity on the offensive glass. On the flip side, Diallo forced up a bad shot in the lane, got the rebound and missed another tough, highly contested left handed jump hook. Although his feel for the game and offensive skill level leave much to be desired, Diallo's 7' 4 wingspan, motor and fluidity should make him a highlight reel at the college level.

2015 Nike Hoop Summit: International Practice: Day Four
April 9, 2015
Cheick Diallo did a great job of getting up and down the floor today. His motor was running hot and he had some very strong finishes around the basket. On the other end, he protected the paint well with his 7-4 wingspan and didn't have any qualms about mixing things up with the taller big men, particularly on the glass where he's a force to be reckoned with. He's looked very intent this week on showing off his mid-range jumper, and was able to knock down a couple of them today, which wasn't the case in the past few days. His passing ability appears to be better than advertised, and he again dropped a few bounce passes today to cutters that hinted at nice things to come as his feel for the game continues to improve.

2015 Nike Hoop Summit: International Measurements
April 6, 2015
Cheick Diallo
Height (w/ shoes): 6-9
Weight: 220
Wingspan: 7-4
Hand Width: 10
Hand Length: 9 1/8
Standing Reach: 9-1
Country: Mali

At 6-9, Diallo is definitely the size of a power forward, and it might be difficult for him to play the center position his skill-set is best suited for offensively. He's also very light at the moment at just 220 pounds, having only gained two pounds since our last measurement this past summer. Players like Anthony Davis and Larry Sanders had similar frames at the same age, so there is still plenty of time for him to continue to fill out once he hits a college weight room. Not only is his 7-4 wingspan absolutely gigantic, he also has a terrific 9-1 standing reach. His measurements are similar to those of Taj Gibson who weighed in at 214 points with a 6'9.75 frame, a 7'4 wingspan and a 9'1 standing reach at the NBA Draft Combine in 2009.
