Nearly every talent evaluator who watches Cheick Diallo comes away with reports that go something like: Runs rim to rim with excellent speed and passion. Super high motor. Explosive leaper. Potential to become a decent shot-blocker. Physical. Strong rebounder at both ends. Powerful. Raw offensive skills keep him from being a guy around whom a team would want to build its offense.
