Today Hamidou Diallo will work out with the Milwaukee Bucks, an organization that is probably one of the most willing to take a chance on him in this year’s draft.
Last year the Bucks drafted Thon Maker at No. 10 overall in a very similar situation: Maker went straight to the NBA from prep school without ever playing a game at the college level. Diallo is in the same boat (although he spent four months in college) and with a 6’11” wingspan and a 44.5″ vertical, the Bucks may run it back by selecting a second straight unknown with its first pick, this year at No. 17.
Joining Diallo in Milwaukee today: Deng Adel (Louisville), L.J. Peak (Georgetown), Nigel Hayes (Wisconsin), Sterling Brown (SMU) and Jalen Moore (Utah State).
