I must admit, this Italian dude was way out of left field. I had no idea. I would’ve never thought the Warriors would get a shooting guard.
But he does fit right in — he’s athletic, he’s thin, a poor defender and rebounder, good-but-streaky shooter.
This could spell the end for Mickael Pietrus, who will probably sign an offer sheet with another team that the Warriors don’t match. Belinelli is supposed to be a better overall player than Pietrus, and he’s cheaper.
This is not a bad pick, from what I’ve read about Marco. It is pretty high. But if the Warriors couldn’t get a big, they might as well have picked a player who would make them a better perimeter team. I guess.
