Rookie Eric Paschall proved to be the league’s best second-round draft pick during the 2019-2020 season. He averaged around 14 points per game, ranking fifth in points per game among rookies. He ranked tenth in minutes per game.
Paschall, a five-year collegiate athlete, was developed when he came into the league, immediately vibing with the Warriors. He clicked well with many of the stars and can relate to Draymond Green, another second-round pick that proved to be a staple of the dynasty.
Any additional time in the limelight for a player like Paschall would prove beneficial. Without Curry or Thompson on the roster for the mini-camps and regulation-style games, Paschall would be able to step up to the plate and continue as a star for this team.
He’s proven to be efficient as a scorer, and he could continue to develop his offensive game as the team’s main scoring option. Also getting more used to the team’s system couldn’t hurt as he’s only played 60 games as a Warrior.
