Diallo performed exceptionally well at the NBA Draft combine, intriguing many NBA scouts with his off-the-chart athleticism. Diallo says that it was his choice to stay off the floor in actual games.
"I'm really proud of Hami", Calipari said in a press release. "He took in all the information, asked a lot of questions, including questions to the National Basketball Association teams", Calipari said in a statement.

"I also want to thank the university for understanding how important this decision was to me".
By choosing to return to Lexington, Diallo dodges becoming the rare none-and-done in the age of the NBA's age-minimum rule.

If he does succeed at Kentucky, he'll certainly be in the discussions as a top 10. Coach Cal and the staff have had my back throughout this entire journey.
Perhaps the Nets could stash players with both picks, having interest in worldwide prospects Rodions Kurucs, Isaiah Hartenstein and Anzejs Pasecniks, among others.
Had Diallo remained in the draft, he would have been the rare prospect to go straight from preps to pros. First-round draft picks sign guaranteed contracts.
For a few weeks, Kentucky couldn't be sure if Diallo would be part of that class or not. If I knew I was leaving after the semester, I would have played to help the team.
