Timberwolves' Keita Bates-Diop: Comes up just shy of double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates-Diop totaled 16 points (7-19 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 1-3 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks, one steal and one assist across 33 minutes during Wednesday's 64-59 summer league loss to the Pistons.

Bates-Diop, a second-round pick in this year's draft from Ohio State, has been a consistent scoring and rebounding presence for Minnesota's summer squad. In four games, he's totaled 60 points and 33 rebounds, plus seven steals and five blocks. Considering the Timberwolves' relatively shallow depth chart, Bates-Diop should have the opportunity to fight for rotational minutes from Day 1.

Timberwolves' Keita Bates-Diop: Double-doubles in summer league win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates-Diop finished Sunday's 103-92 summer league win over the Raptors with 24 points (7-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks across 35 minutes.

After shooting just 27.2 percent in the Vegas Summer League opener, Bates-Diop dialed back in Sunday, knocking down 46.7 percent of his field goal attempts and 50 percent of his three-pointers. He also had another strong showing on the boards, resulting in his first double-double this summer. A second-round pick of the Timberwolves this year, Bates-Diop has the upper-hand on securing a roster spot over the other unproven players on the team's summer league roster. However, even if he does earn a guaranteed contract, Bates-Diop would likely only be in line for a minor complementary role off the bench.

Timberwolves' Keita Bates-Diop: Contributes nine points in Vegas Summer League opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates-Diop totaled nine points (3-11 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, one steal and one block across 31 minutes during the Timberwolves' 70-69 loss the Nuggets in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Friday.

The 2018 second-round pick's potential game-winning 37-footer at the buzzer couldn't find the net, but he had his moments overall. Bates-Diop was solid on the boards in particular while drawing the start at small forward, even as he mostly scuffled on the offensive end. The former Ohio State Buckeye was initially projected to see limited playing time during his rookie campaign, but Nemanja Bjelica's recent departure to the 76ers could open up more opportunity for Bates-Diop than originally believed.
