The NBA has announced its All-Rookie teams, and Gorgui Dieng was able to make it on the Second Team. Early in the season, this probably sounded crazy. He didn’t start getting meaningful minutes until the last couple of months after Nikola Pekovic got injured for the Timberwolves. Gorgui made the most of his playing time, that’s for sure. There is a chance that Kevin Love could be playing somewhere else next season. If that is the case, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Gorgui average a double-double for the season!
