The draft’s heavy hitters are now expected to come through downtown Oakland. So far, Golden State’s workouts have been filled with second-rounders and a few options at No. 30. But now that the Warriors have the No. 7 overall pick, you can expect the notables to come through.
General manager Bob Myers said a few agents were waiting to see how the draft order played out. But now, Myers said he expects his phone to ring off the hook. Landing at No. 7 opens up a huge window of options of the Warriors. Myers said he hopes to workout every player he can.
“We’ll get in as many people as we can,” Myers said. “I see no reason not to. Put them against each other the best you can. Hopefully they’ll come. I think they will.”
Myers said the depth is at the forward spot, and that is where the Warriors’ greatest needs are, so many of the top options are now on the board. Here is a look at 5 players the Warriors could take. The question is do they go for need, best player available or the player they fell in love with most.
