Gorgui Dieng has been working on his post moves with legendary center Hakeem Olajuwon.
"He just tries to add more tools to what I have," Dieng said of Olajuwon. One area of focus for Dieng is to create more space betweeen him and the defender, and his time spent with Olajuwon is only going to benefit him next season. On a side note, Dieng said he expects to play some point forward for Team Africa against Team World on Saturday, so that should be interesting to say the least. Minnesota's frontcourt is a little crowded right now especially after the arrival of Karl-Anthony Towns, so Dieng's minutes could take a hit next season. Jul 30 - 2:12 PM
