Louisville Draftees Dieng and Siva Meet Their New Teams

After being drafted yesterday with the 21st (Dieng) and 56th (Siva) picks, the two former Louisville stars were introduced to their teams today at press conferences.

Both players had their numbers changed for the pros, as Dieng is now number five, and Siva is now number 34.  It is sad to see them wearing something other than a Louisville uniform, but I can take solace in the fact that they’re now on to doing bigger and better things.  I’ll stop there, because I’m really starting to sound like a parent…


Good luck to them in the pros.  And they can always take comfort in the knowledge that they have at least 700,000 fans.
