|Career highlights and awards|
Diener played collegiately at Marquette University, and was a member of the great Golden Eagles team that reached the NCAA Tournament Final Four in 2003. That Golden Eagles team had three future NBA players, including Diener, Dwyane Wade and Steve Novak.
Following his college career at Marquette, he was a second-round draft choice (38th overall) of the Orlando Magic in the 2005 NBA Draft. His selection by the Magic mystified some critics, who argued that the team was overloading on point guards, already having Steve Francis and Jameer Nelson on their roster.
Diener made his NBA debut on December 2, 2005, playing 22 minutes and scoring twenty-three points in a loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.
On June 19, 2007, the Indiana Pacers signed Diener (who was a free agent) to a three-year deal reportedly worth $4.86 million.
He is represented by Washington D.C based agent, Doug Neustadt.
