Over the weekend, former Louisville big man Gorgui Dieng singed his first NBA contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Dieng was drafted by the Utah Jazz in the first round with the 21st pick, but was immediately traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves, along with former UCLA star Shabazz Mohammad. Dieng’s contract is reportedly for four years with the first two years being guaranteed. The third and fourth years of the contract will be the team’s option. Over the first two years, Dieng will earn a guaranteed $2,766,120. Dieng made his NBA Summer League debut for Minnesota on Saturday against the NBDL Select Team. In 22 minutes Dieng had four points, four rebounds and two blocks. The T-Wolves are in action again on Monday at 6:30 PM against the Phoenix Suns.
