    Appears Warriors will try to buy a 2nd round pick if they can although not sure what teams will want to help the Warriors.

    In any case, are there any projected 2nd round guys you would like to see the Warriors end up with?

    I haven't spent a ton of time on this but a couple of guys I find interesting

    PF - Cam Oliver - Nevada
    Undersized but my lord is this guy athletic. Really long wingspan help him be a good rebounder and rim protector. Effective in the paint and shot almost 40% from 3 on 5 attempts per game.



    PG - Monte Morris - Iowa State
    Led the nation in assist to turnover ratio and the dude can shoot and play some D. Outside of his skinny frame, not sure why he is rated so low in this draft


    PF - Alec Peters - Valpo
    Probably a one dimensional player but dude can flat out SHOOT!!! He could be deadly for us in the PNR with Curry... would be very hard to blitz Curry with a guy that can shoot like this.


    C - Anzejs Pasecniks - Intl.
    Maybe TMC knows about this guy. At 7'1 looks pretty coordinated and lively and looks like he has a nice shot

    Don't know shit about most euro guys on this draft... Don't have enough time to follow the NFL, NBA and "scout" (so to speak) unknown euro kids anymore, if I want to have some kind of life other than job and sports, that is.

    Also, I'm not sure my wife would enjoy to see me watching vids of obscure basketball talents in the scarce free time I've got... :D


    With that said, I really like Jordan Bell, an athletic PF from Oregon, and Davon Reed, a 3-and-D SG from Miami.

    Bell has a lot more upside, and I think he could definitely be a late first rounder, but if he falls, he'd be a good choice. Probably a year away from contributing, tho, but we can wait. Reed doesn't have the same upside, but can develop into a nice role player, kind of like Wes Matthews, and probably sooner than Bell.

    Don't know much about other prospects, and the ones I've seen, I don't like them so much as those two... ;)

    Phily up in 2nd round. With like 4 second rounders, have to think they are a target of the Warriors to buy a pick from.

    I freaking love this move! You guys will also. He is a monster defender. He reminds me a lot of Draymond.

    Wow, the Warriors paid up for that 38th pick! The maximum you can buy a pick for is $3.5 million... which is what Lacob paid to acquire Bell and about $3 million more than what Bell will make this year lol

    Lacob is the guy that wasn't invited to the party, but he shows up anyway and has no boundaries.

    Thanks, man! Almost a year already, we'll have our first anniversary soon!


    Love the "trade". Bell is going to be really good, although he's still pretty raw, but the athleticism is there, and that's something you either have or you don't. Chum is right, he's probably seen a lot more of Bell than I've seen, but he's always looked like a really intense defender, someone who loves that side of the game. Probably could use some time in the NBDL, but he's a really good pick. Couldn't be happier.

    Gatorade-League... now that they will be the official sponsor of that league now. Guess they felt "Developmental League" sounds more appealing to fans that don't know or care for it much, yet.

    I'm a fan of the D-League, or G-League, or whatever it is called. They really seem to get the guys sorted out for the big time.

    That being said, I don't think Bell will need to go. He knows how to play right now. I can't freaking wait to see Draymond and Bell play together. Two all-business enforcers.

    In terms of defense and rebounding, I agree he's ready to help right away. But he's got trouble with basics (boxing out) and is really raw on offense.

    It's not like he needs to go, but he certainly could use some time there to develop, because once the season starts, he won't have many minutes. And the best part is that we're in a position in which we can afford to give him that time to develop.

    When does Looney bite the bullet and join the Santa Cruz Warriors coaching staff?

    Awesome pick. And now he has Draymond as his mentor and Ron Adams coaching. Imagine another Dray type player coming off the bench...
