Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Diakite was born Jan. 21, 1997 in Conakry, Guinea. He's the son of Aboubacar Sidiki Diakite and Aminata Kaba. Diakite grew up playing soccer but later picked up basketball due to his height. He tried to draw attention from the United States through Facebook. It worked, and Diakite was contacted by Hassan Fofana, a Guinea native and former college basketball player. That led to Diakite joining a Blue Ridge School in 2014 - a boarding school in Saint George, Virginia. In addition to basketball, he participated in soccer and track and field. As a basketball player, he was a four-star recruit and Virginia's top prospect. He committed to play college ball at Virginia. He redshirted his first college basketball season, eventually debuting in 2016. He got his first start as a junior. That season, he started 22 of 38 games and averaged 7.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 21.8 minutes, and Virginia won the National Championship. He returned as a senior to start all 30 appearances and averaged 13.7 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 32.8 minutes. As a senior, he was named to the ACC All-Second Team and ACC All-Defensive team.

Makes first start Wednesday
FCleveland Charge   G League (Cavaliers)
November 30, 2022
Diakite posted six points (2-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and one steal over 23 minutes during Wednesday's 113-85 win over Philadelphia.
ANALYSIS
With Kevin Love (thumb), Lamar Stevens (illness) and Jarrett Allen (back) all injured, Diakite was recalled from the G League and received his first start as a Cavalier. The 25-year-old had played more than five minutes only one other time for Cleveland before Wednesday's game. While he hasn't received regular playing time, he's been effective when given the chance and has made 58.8 percent of his shot attempts and gone 4-for-9 from beyond the arc.

September 7, 2022
Diakite worked out for the Cavaliers this week, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
ANALYSIS
Cleveland is looking at nine free agents, with Diakite among the group without much NBA experience. The 25-year-old forward has seen action in only 27 games over the last two seasons, including 13 contests with Thunder in 2021-22, and if he earns a contract with the Cavs, he will head into training camp trying to win the final spot on the 15-man roster.
