So every week, HOOPSWORLD will be putting out a mock draft. We started last Friday and I'm one of the experts that are assigned to it. This is why I was in Europe scouting a few months ago.
Anyway, here's the link:
As you can see, the consensus pick is Jason Smith, the seven-footer out of Colorado State. I had him going one spot earlier to the Nets, so without another big man on the board that I feel like can contribute immediately, I figured the Dubs would go with a Harrington clone in Al Thornton, whose stock has been slipping. The other guy has the Dubs picking Brandon Rush, who I think would fit if the Warriors don't re-sign Barnes.
Early word from Cohan camp is they'll give Barnes 3 million a year, but we'll see how that shakes out.
Thoughts on the early draft talk? Sorry folks, Yi will be gone by the time the Warriors pick :(
