According to sources, Waiters is high on the Warriors’ draft board. The 6-foot-4, 221-pound guard has impressed several teams and appears to be one of the hot names. He impresses the Warriors because of his ability to score, create offense and also play point guard. He’s got good size for a point guard. Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said Waiters’ game reminds him of Dwayne Wade.
Ross is more of a sleeper pick. At 6-foot-7, 197 pounds, is in many ways a more athletic Klay Thompson. He can shoot it, and his game is based on his shot. Ross, because of his quickness and hops, was a good college defender with the potential to be a good NBA defender. He rebounds well (6.4 per game last season), too. Like Thompson, Ross needs work on his ability to create for others and needs to get better at getting to the rim and drawing fouls. He also needs to bulk up. Yes, Golden State already has a starting shooting guard in Thompson. But that doesn’t matter, according to sources.
