7. Gorgui Dieng
From the West African nation of Senegal, the large Center, Gorgui Dieng played in the United States in High School and in College at the University of Louisville.  Dieng would be a late first rounder for the Timberwolves and has provento be a solid member of the NBA.  As a very young man, we are anxious to see what else he may have within him on the hardwood.
