The New York Knicks have drafted Ousmane Dieng of France with the 11th pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.

Dieng, a 19-year-old small forward, last played for the New Zealand Breakers, a professional basketball team based in Auckland, New Zealand.

Standing 6'10", scouting reports say that Dieng shows promise as a ball-handling forward with two-way versatility.

The New York Knicks endured a disappointing 2021-22 season, finishing 37-45 and missing out on the playoffs just one year after making the postseason in 2020-21.
