On Monday, the team hosted six different draft eligible players, as they continue to search for offseason upgrades through the draft. The six players Golden State worked out were 6’6” shooting guard Ben Emelogu from SMU, 6’6” shooting guard Melvin Frazier from Tulane, 6’6” small forward Jeffrey Carroll from Oklahoma State, 6’8” small forward Xavier Cooks from Winthrop, 6’8” small forward Terry Larrier from Connecticut, and 6’9” power forward William Lee from UAB.

None of these players are strong enough prospects for the Warriors to consider with their lone draft pick, which is 28th overall. However, Golden State has a knack for buying into the second round, as they did when they drafted Jordan Bell last year, and Patrick McCaw the year before. They could perhaps buy a second round pick if they feel these players are worth it, or they could wait and try to sign them as undrafted free agents.
This comes just a few days after the Warriors worked out the famous LiAngelo Ball.
