DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — President Barack Obama is in Africa to promote democracy and trade but he can't keep his mind off the NBA draft about to begin back home.
During his toast at a state dinner Thursday in Dakar, Obama said he couldn't be in the country and not mention the draft.
That's because Senegal native Gorgui Dieng is in the mix, and Obama hopes his beloved Chicago Bulls will add Dieng to its roster.
Obama is an avid basketball fan. He called Dieng, who played center for Louisville, an "outstanding big man" and said "maybe the Bulls will get him."
