If you believe the rumor reported by Rusty Simmons of the SF Chronicle and Adam Johnson of SeaDubs Central, the Golden State Warriors' 2014 NBA Draft fate depends on Doug McDermott or Nik Stauskas falling to the 13th pick. Oh - and we'd get Kevin Love too!
If you're sick of the rumors and have already counted the Warriors out of this draft night, the links below might still be helpful.
Although the Warriors don't have a pick entering the draft, here's a few prospects you might want to keep your eye on:
- First round targets for the Warriors
- Second round and potentially undrafted targets for the Warriors
@VJL_bball has a rather comprehensive statstical analysis of every prospect posted at Canis Hoopus, including projected wins produced, odds of becoming a star/starter/reserve/bust, and player similarities. Definitely check that out to see who's making the smartest picks. It's also interesting to compare those prospect similarities to Ian Levy's over at Hickory-High.
Not to bring up old stuff, but Kyle Anderson and Jordan Adams are widely considered two of the draft's biggest sleepers because they're rated highly by just about every metric out there.
That should get you through the draft. If the Warriors manage to crash the party tonight, we'll be sure to have more thoughts on that as well.
