What the Warriors Must Do in the Draft
Doesn't look like a good trade will become available so I expect the Warriors to take the 7 & 14 picks. There seem to be a lot of interesting risers and fallers so I'm not sure who will fall to 7 now.
If Kuminga falls to 7 the Warriors have to take him. Immediate wing depth with GREAT size and athleticism. Superstar ceiling but also a pretty low floor, a potential boom or bust. But even as a bust, that wing depth will help right away without Oubre.
If Kuminga is gone, I want Josh Giddey from Australia. 6'7" true PG that could be Shaun Livingston 2.0 for the current roster. Down the road they have a core future with a big PG and athletic C with limitless potential in Wiseman. Fits both current and future timeline.
Then Chris Duarte from Oregon at 14. A senior that can play day one but probably with limited growth. This gives them another player that can bridge the Klay timeline throughout the year being the most NBA day 1 prospect in the draft.
I think Kuminga, Duarte and Wiseman winning or having a Most Improved Player kind of year would put them in the Western Conference Finals. And then anything is possible from there.
