Zagoria: “Diallo Decision ‘Going Down to the Wire’”

No one knows the New York amateur basketball scene better than Adam Zagoria, so you have to trust everything he says and reports about anyone from the area, including Hamidou Diallo.

Therefore, we must listen when Zagoria says a source told him Diallo’s decision may not come until Wednesday, the deadline for making that decision.

“It’s going to the wire on Wednesday,” Zagoria’s source told him“A decision could be made before Wednesday but right now it’s looking like Wednesday.”

That may be the case, but we’ll keep refreshing the Diallo newswire every minute between now and Wednesday at midnight, just to be safe.

    At this point I’m fairly certain he’s gone except in the case that he comes back.

    The news is that there is no news… I feel like that’s probably good if you’re hoping he’ll come back to UK. If he’s gotten the nod from any team he’d have announced he was going to stay.

    That said, do we still want Cameron Johnson if Diallo comes back? It can’t hurt to have a pair of elite shooting guards on the roster dueling it out for position (and/or platoon again)

    If he was always going like so many “fans” insist online when attacking him, he’d have just announced already. It’s not like he’s waiting for a definite promise from a team. No one’s gonna give him a written contract that they’ll draft him in the first round, so all he can get is verbal assurances from teams, some of whom probably want him to drop to the second round where they can get him cheaper (or even trade down to get him).

    I’m sure the hate he’s getting online hasn’t made him more likely to come back to UK. Kids now live on social media, so you know he’s heard about the hate, just like recruits do. Hopefully he makes the best decision for himself for next year and the future, and ideally that means coming back to play for UK. .

    Daily changes as more drop the draft and return to school. Many picked from out side the lottery and late 1st or early 2nd will have tough decisions to make up to the last hour. Enough drop out increases odds that Diallo stays in.

    I know him personally. He tells me he will stay in the draft.

      Then why hasn’t he announced. I call BS on that.

      Because he’s trying to get guaranteed money bro. The longer he waits the more information he gets.

      Dude he gets information even if he says he is going to stay in the draft. Teams won’t just stop talking to him. You’re full of shit.



    • Bluebloodtoo
      4:03 pm May 22, 2017 Permalink

      Yeah, BS. If you know him personally and he trusts you, then you wouldn’t be talking on here. If you know him personally and he doesn’t trust you, then you don’t have this info. Troll elsewhere, please.

      “Bilzarian”? Is that a real name? Not saying that he is not staying in the draft (he probably is), just not so sure we believe you are his bud.

      Oh man… You really got me that time. When people say things like “stay woke” that’s when I know what’s up. That’s the guy I want to trust with information about my future.
      Did you really correct my grammar in the same post where you said “stay woke”?

      “pass off”?

      Is that a typo, some new-fangled slang terminology, or just a really strange accent?

      This is not true. He already has an agent hes been in contact with.

      Uhhhhh…..this is a quote from your above post. “This is not true. He already has an agent hes been in contact with.” What pisses me off is when some wanna be somebody pretends to be something their not.

    I heard he was trying to make a life changing decision with very little trustworthy data. Did you know that people who make these kinds of decisions for a living wouldn’t even consider making this big of a decision without contractural obligations? Yet we expect a 18 yo with absolutely no relevant experience to make this decision on a timetable that works for us? Seriously people!?

    I’d say that he stays in the draft…BUT….here’s to sure hoping he comes back to kick major AZZ in the NCAA next year. Would love to watch the dunks that’ll come from this guy. Come on HAMI! Come back, dominate, improve, and be a potential #1 pick next year in a weak draft. 😄😃😀

    The longer this goes on, the more I think that no one has guaranteed him and the more hopeful I get. Get back in here, Hami.

    • UKALLDAY1
      3:35 am May 23, 2017 Permalink

      Your right, the game is more than just fast break highlight dunks! So if we remove Hami and his brick laying (Think Briscoe or Andrew Harrison when it comes to his jumper) and replace him with Johnson who can shoot it like Craig Hodges, it spreads the floor and creates lanes for PJ and Jarred to do damage at the rim. Coach Cal has never had a lineup that included 3 consistent shooters. Quade, Johnson and Kevin will give him 3 shooters on the floor at the same time. At best it is a wash, cause Hami can play D better than Johnson, I just prefer a team that can stroke it with confidence.

      “Quade, Johnson and Kevin will give him 3 shooters on the floor at the same time.” Don’t sleep on Jemarl Baker either. I know he’s not a high sizzle McDAA or transfer but he’ll be a Cat next season and he has range.

      I’d like both Diallo and Johnson but prefer Johnson. I think his size and style of play will add needed diversity to next season’s Cats team.
