Being compared to Danny Green or Josh Richardson, Devin Vassell, a sophomore from Florida State, may not be the best fit for Golden State. The Warriors will have a backcourt that can score next season, one thing to note.
With Damion Lee projected to be on the roster and a healthy Klay Thompson along with Jordan Poole and Ky Bowman, the room for another shooting guard may be minimal.
In college at Florida State, Vassell averaged 12.7 points and 1.5 threes per game, his two clear strengths. A solid 6-foot-7 guard-forward combo, Vassell is projected to be a lottery pick and has even neared the top ten in many mock drafts.
On the All-ACC team in 2019-2020, Vassell improved drastically as a defender, averaging 1.4 steals and 1.0 blocks per game. Those, and all his numbers, were helped by Vassell going from starting zero games his freshman season to all but one this year.
He may be an above-average player, like Green has been, for a decade to come, but he doesn’t boast that superstar ceiling that Golden State should be looking for in their draft pick, assuming they land in the top three.
