More on Mamadi Diakite Free Agency

Simply, Mamadi Diakite wanted a shot. Undrafted out of the University of Virginia, the 6-foot, 9-inch forward with an NCAA championship ring hoped to get a chance just to play in the NBA. The Milwaukee Bucks gave him that with a two-way contract. Four months later, Diakite has taken full advantage of the opportunity and the club will convert that deal into a multi-year contract.
