Mamadi Diakite Rumors

The virtual interviews will be important. As of now, the Cavs can only talk with seniors and select international prospects. Sources say they recently had an online interview with Virginia big man Mamadi Diakite, who is a potential second-round pick that tested the draft waters in 2019 before opting to return for his senior season and being named second team All-ACC. There are more of those chats lined up, but once the early-entry list is confirmed, the number of interview candidates will increase and the Cavs can really dig into this class.
