Stone, a 6-foot-7 pass-first guard, is Conference USA's all-time assists leader. He passed Tim Hardaway on UTEP's assists chart and is the lone player in school history to compile more than 500 points, 500 rebounds and 500 assists. He has worked out for New York and New Jersey and has scheduled sessions in Los Angeles, Denver and Sacramento, but he was well aware of his fit alongside the Warriors' undersized guards. "Any team that takes me is going to get a big true point guard who can defend three positions," Stone said. "I can be on the court with a smaller '2' guard, because I can defend the opponent's bigger '2.' "Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry are great players, but they don't have much size. A player like me likes to pass and allow those guys to do what they do on offense. On defense, I can help them avoid mismatches." Stone studies great NBA point guards and mimics parts of 6-9 lead guard Magic Johnson's game. He also transitioned from Tony Barbee's run-and-gun offense to Tim Floyd's half-court sets while at UTEP.

This kid seems to be flying under everyone's radar. Glad we brought him in. Heck, sounds like he could be our new coach in a pinch.
