If the name Bryan Fonseca sounds familiar to you, it is because he was the first person to report Hamidou Diallo would return to Kentucky, over an entire day before Diallo announced that decision. The credibility is strong in this one.
That leaves us to wonder what Brooklyn told Diallo before he decided to return. If the team was so set on drafting him, why didn’t they give him the promise he was seeking? And if they did, why did he come back?
I guess it doesn’t matter now though. He’s a Wildcat.
