Tom Thibodeau said that to this point the team hasn't had any meaningful discussions regarding a contract extension with Gorgui Dieng.
Minnesota has until Oct 31 to come to terms on an extension with Dieng, although it wouldn't be surprising to see him opt for free agency, given that he'll have every opportunity to increase his value this year as the starting power forward under Thibodeau. Dieng got off to a slow start last year, as Sam Mitchell gave too many minutes to Kevin Garnett and Nemanja Bjelica early on, but it's a safe bet that that won't be an issue with Thibs at the helm. He's a high-upside, mid-round target. Sep 21 - 10:03 AM
