7. Golden State Warriors: Andre Drummond, C (UConn)
Golden State GM Bob Myers has a tough choice ahead of him. His team holds four draft picks, and he must set the tone with a smart pick at No. 7.
The Warriors are very close to being a playoff-caliber team. They need one more piece in their frontcourt, and they need an elite wing player.
Both of these needs will be available here, but I like Drummond to come off the board.
Drummond is an outstanding athlete. He's an intimidating defender, and he shows flashes on the offensive end. The only real question is his desire, but that could change with maturity.
When Drummond's freshman season is criticized, you have to keep in mind that he played college ball as a 17-year-old. He oozes upside, and he has a ton of room to grow.
The Warriors would benefit from adding Drummond to their open-floor attack. He would provide solid depth behind Andrew Bogut until he's ready to start.
Golden State could also consider Terrence Jones or Perry Jones III with this pick. Their presence on the wing would be an upgrade over Dorell Wright, but Drummond, based on potential, could be the best player in the draft
— Latest Mocks have Drummond going to Warriors at 7 Could he fall that far? Is the negative hype due to him being a 17 year old playing college ball when he should have been a senior in high school? Does the media hype give the Warriors the chance to draft a franchise player? IF the Warriors draft Drummond and he is an All Star and Bogut is healthy, then the Ellis trade will go down as one of the best trades in history.
