5. Cole Anthony
An underrated scorer for North Carolina, Cole Anthony led the Tar Heels in scoring as a freshman and has forced his name into lottery projections. Anthony is a lightning-quick point guard with high-level shot-creating and playmaking upside.
He wasn’t the most efficient shooter, finishing the season under 40 percent from both the field and 3-point line. However, he did average nearly 20 points and dish out 4.0 assists per game, showing his talents as a producer on offense.
Anthony is undersized but was a surprisingly strong rebounder for his position. He hauled in 5.7 rebounds a game last season, the third most on his team. His grit and grind attitude gives him potential to be a plus defender in the future.
The Golden State Warriors should consider Anthony if they fall deeper into the draft order via bad luck in the lottery or a trade. Anthony can be a positive two-way player for the franchise moving forward and a heat-check threat on the bench.
