In Villeneuve-sur-Lot, the René-Descartes sports complex, which saw the first dribbles of Ousmane Dieng, will also see the advent of the 19-year-old player in the NBA. it will be 8 p.m. in New York, but 2 a.m. in Villeneuve-sur-Lot. The Villeneuve Basket Club yesterday had permission from the town hall to use the Descartes room at night. The screens in the complex used on match nights will serve as televisions. The satellite line was installed by technicians to broadcast the NBA Draft live at 2:00 a.m. Thursday night through Friday. Thus the public present will be able to discover where the young French player will land. This idea, the club imagined it a few months ago. “We’ve wanted to do this evening since he announced his candidacy for the NBA Draft. It’s so exceptional for us. We couldn’t stay idle. So, since we can’t all go to New York, we bring the Draft to us”, explains Thomas Ribes, co-president in charge of the youth teams of Villeneuve Basket.
