Welcome to the Bay Ifeanyi Festus Ezeli-Ndelue!

The Warriors went BIG with this pick. Ezeli is listed at 7'0 264 pounds. This Nigerian-born big man's reach is 8'10 and his wingspan is 7'6. He will be turning 23 before the season starts. Ezeli is older than last year's rookie big man Jeremy Tyler. There's nothing wrong with stashing away some young big bodies and hoping one of them pans out down the road.

Let's hope this works out, because it's a guaranteed contract. You almost wish the Warriors were picking #31 overall with the first pick in the second round instead.
