Along with 134 other young basketball players, Ousmane Dieng took part in the NBA (National Basketball Association) Draft on the night of June 23 to 24. This event is immeasurable for lovers of the orange balloon. It is thanks to this Draft that French people like Tony Parker, Joakim Noah or Rudy Gobert meet on the other side of the NBA. On the eve of these basketball legends, Ousmane Dieng is a candidate for the 76th edition of the NBA Draft.
The Draft, the typical American show
Existing since 1947, the NBA Draft is an ancestor in the American sports world. It is an annual meeting, each year, to discuss passions, like simple curiosities. We find the same concept in other American sports. During the NBA Draft, the best young players on the planet come together for an evening. This year, the Barclays Center in Brooklyn will host the elite basketball players. Each year, the 30 franchises present in the NBA will be allocated to the two “pick” of the Draft. These “peaks” are actually reality. Teams are very selective for two players in the draft. Here, we are not talking about first come, first served. To save this team from choosing first, a “lottery” type circulation is organized and prior. This edition uses a probabilistic system. Plus, a season pass team waiting for match fixing, the higher your chances of getting a better score. This, after reporting on the strengths in the NBA. The higher the “pick”, the more it is judged and the bigger it is. On Jewish Justice Night, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will announce a few. It has 60 “peaks”, divided between two rounds of 30.
The “pick”, a change of money
Franchises have a “choice” of lords from each tour. Incidentally, a team can do anything to change one of the “peaks”. These form a perfect currency. The 30 teams do not have the opportunity to draft. Some franchises are unwilling and unable to take the time to develop young players. It is therefore not uncommon to see a franchise with good results, exchange its “peaks” of Draft against more experimental players, who can bring him immediate success. Otherwise, the franchises lack the best players against a maximum of “picks” of the Draft, and this, in order to reconstitute the teams. Each year, teams will volunteer to play matches to increase their chances of receiving a top pick award. While Ousmane Dieng’s destination is uncertain, the only certainty is that he has an instant career.
