The best-value pick of the 2019 NBA Draft, Eric Paschall immediately step up in and helped fill part of the hole that Kevin Durant’s exodus created. Averaging 14.0 points per game, Paschall played all season with an energy that’s hard to match.
It’s almost as though he waited five years to get to the professional level. Oh wait, Paschall did! Developing his game at Villanova, Paschall was able to immediately come in and shoot almost 50% from the field.
He’s exactly what you want in a second-round pick, and he absolutely killed it this season.
Paschall should see a larger role next season even with Thompson and Curry returning. Playing a critical position in a less-than-ideal frontcourt, Paschall will be a solid option for Steve Kerr and the Warriors.
The Warriors have several other players that’ll likely crack their roster from this team, but these five seem the most probable to be locks.
