Gorgui Dieng

Anyone else seeing what this guy is doing with his minutes? Since Pekovic went down, Dieng has averaged:

12.2 pt 13.8 reb 1.6 ast 1.2 blk 1.2 stl 56% from the field

It has only been 5 full games but they have been against some of the best centers in the league (Howard, Gasol, and Cousins). And despite the Wolves losing 3 of the 5 and the aggregate final point margins (Min +2 vs. Sac, +1 vs Dal, -23 vs Hou, -7 vs Phx, -17 vs Mem), he is a surprising +9.

I like Shane Larkin as much as the next guy, this is only 5 games, and Dieng is 3 years older than Shane for what it's worth but maybe the Mavs should have stuck with height and a proven winner in the draft (not that a Mavs draft miss is new news). I know 20 other teams passed on him too but this one hurts a little bit since he was on my list.
