There's no shortage of young talent in the 2022 NBA Draft, and that includes New Zealand Breakers prospect Ousmane Dieng.

Dieng figures to be a first-round pick on draft night, but the real question is whether he makes his way into the top-10 or not.

Here's everything you need to know about Dieng ahead of the 2022 NBA Draft.

Ousmane Dieng NBA Draft Stock & Projection

Round 1
- New York Knicks (No. 11) - 1
- Oklahoma City Thunder (No. 12) - 1
- Houston Rockets (No. 17) - 1

All three of the highlighted mock drafts project Ousmane Dieng to land with a team just outside the top 10 overall picks. Dieng is a long ways away from being an NBA contributor, but his raw talent as a combo forward could help a rebuilding team develop into a great one down the road. The Knicks, Thunder and Rockets all fit that mold.

Ousmane Dieng Stats

2021-22 New Zealand Breakers (NBL)
- 8.9 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.3 blocks, 1.4 turnovers, 1.1 3-pointers, 20.3 minutes per game. 39.8% field goal, 27.1% 3-point shooting.

These statistics may not seem too impressive, but Dieng was 18 years old for most of the NBL season and drastically improved over the second half. In his last 12 games, Dieng averaged 13.3 points and shot 44.3% from the floor in increased minutes. He has the length to contest shots, can guard multiple positions on defense and has a nasty crossover move he uses to evade defenders.
