Career: INSEP (France-3rd Div., 1997-99), Bondy (France-Pro B, 1999-2000), Paris BR (France-Pro A, 2000-05), Elan Chalon (France-Pro A, 2005-06).

The second scoring force behind Tony Parker while at INSEP - the famous French Institute of Sports where most of the most talented French youngsters work on their game before turning professional - Mamoutou has developed a bit slower than some other players from his generation. But after leaving Paris for the first time last year, he blossomed at Chalon under coach Greg Beugnot.

Very athletic, Diarra has found a reliable three point shot the past two years. National Team coach Claude Bergeaud loves his unselfish attitude and his defence. And Bergeaud also knows that he needs shooters to prevent teams from using zone defences too often. Diarra's brother, Oxmo Puccino, is a famous rap singer in France.
