Hamidou Diallo, the 6-foot-6 shooting guard from Putnam Science Academy (CT), is the main attraction for the scouts and will be playing Friday and Saturday night.
Diallo is eligible for the 2017 NBA Draft, as first reported by ZAGSBLOG, but has stated his desire to spend at least a year in college in 2017-18. He’s now projected as the No. 11 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft by DraftExpress.com.
