RUMOR: DeMarcus Cousins is Golden State Warriors guy and Greg Monroe is next

New, comments

Can you believe the 2010 NBA Draft is less than 5 days away? The Warriors have a new logo and if the draft rumors and projections are indicating what they're supposed to indicate, they'll also have a new skilled big man to add to their collection of raw, soft, and lost (read: not good) big men "building blocks".

Big, I tell you. BIG!

Chad Ford writes in his Mock Draft 5.0 [ESPN Insider]:

The Warriors are among the most difficult teams in the draft to predict right now. Over the course of the past week, I've heard a number of players were atop their list, including DeMarcus Cousins, Greg Monroe, Al-Farouq Aminu, Xavier Henry, Ekpe Udoh, Patrick Patterson ... I could go on...

For weeks, the word I've been getting is Cousins is the guy. If he's off the board, the next closest consensus among sources (and I use the word consensus loosely) is Monroe. The Warriors need more size, and Monroe's high basketball IQ and skill level should be a nice fit in Golden State.

Personally, I'd be happy with either Cousins or Monroe. Both got some flava.

But didn't this dance go out of style in the 60's?
