Diakite has made 12 appearances for the Charge this season, averaging 16.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game.

    Diakite has made just two appearances with the Charge, but he's made his presence felt in the G League with averages of 24.0 points and 7.0 rebounds per game in that span. He's simply looking for the minutes he's not getting with the Cavaliers, but he should be bouncing between the NBA and the G League as the season progresses.

  • Cavaliers' Mamadi Diakite: Sent to G League

    Diakite was assigned to the G League's Cleveland Charge on Wednesday.

    Diakite has divided his time between the Cavaliers and the Charge, and he has been a top producer at the G League level. As long as he stays with the team, he should be one of the team's top producers on a regular basis. He averaged 22.8 points per game during the Showcase in the previous months.

  • Cavaliers' Mamadi Diakite: Out of starting lineup

    Diakite will come off the bench Tuesday against the Lakers, Evan Dammarell of FearTheSword.com reports.

    With Jarrett Allen (back) returning, Diakite will resume a reserve role. However, he barely played when Allen was healthy, and given that he's on a two-way deal, Diakite may get sent back to the G League sooner than later.

    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.
