The team’s 2019 first-round pick, I believe Poole is a lock to crack the roster next season. While he did have stretches of play that probably made the Warriors resent picking him, the young gun came back after a short stretch in the G-League and found his rhythm.
Since then and up until the suspension of the league due to coronavirus, Poole has taken his game to the next level.
The 6-foot-4 20-year-old out of Michigan is technically averaging 8.8 points per game on 33.3% from the field this season.
But, his more recent numbers are way more impressive. His last 13-game stint, Poole averaged 14.3 points per game over his last 13 games, shooting 47% from the field and also tacking on 3.9 assists.
That’s impressive, and like Jacob Evans III a season ago, the Warriors will keep a player on that shows any type of potential. Poole, for what it’s worth, has shown much more potential to end his rookie season than Evans did.
