Michigan's Moussa Diabate makes final decision on 2022 NBA Draft
After spending one season at Michigan, freshman sensation Moussa Diabate has decided to take a chance at the NBA.
Stadium’s Jeff Goodman is reporting that Diabate, a 6-foot-11 freshman out of Michigan, will keep his name in the 2022 NBA Draft. He declared following the conclusion of the 2021-22 season and kept the option for a return to Ann Arbor open for the 2022-23 campaign.
Diabate, a native of Paris, played in 32 games for the Wolverines as a true freshman, making 26 starts. He proved to be a key piece for a team that made a trip to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament, one of just two B1G squads to accomplish the feat.
