There had been no guarantees for Hamdiou Diallo. He’d left Kentucky after a year projected outside the first round of the June NBA Draft, and even after Brooklyn took him 45th in the second round — and he ultimately was traded to the Thunder via the Charlotte Hornets — there were few assurances. He got one last week, signing a three-year contract with the Thunder, a moment he said “was definitely a relief” when he met with reporters Thursday in Lexington, Kentucky. “Definitely signing the contract was like a blessing,” Diallo said in a news conference prior to his appearance at the John Calipari Draft Academy camp. “Much more to come though.”

Bobby Marks, ESPN: The Hamidou Diallo (Oklahoma City) and Khyri Thomas (Detroit) signings now have 17 players selected in the second round of the June Draft under contract. Each of the second round picks have at a minimum of three years on their contract except for Jevon Carter (Memphis). The point guard was restricted to only two years because Memphis had signed Kyle Anderson to the full midlevel exception. The top three players with the most guaranteed money are Rodions Kurucs ($4.8M), Jalen Brunson ($4.3M) and Gary Trent Jr. ($3.9M). In addition, the last three players selected in the second round, Thomas Welsh, George King and Kostas Antetokounmpo were signed to Two-Way Contracts.
