3. Tyrese Haliburton
If the Golden State Warriors want a trustworthy guard to fill in when Stephen Curry needs a break, Tyrese Haliburton is their guy. He was one of the most reliable point guards in the NCAA last season and led Iowa State in points and assists.
As a sophomore, Haliburton took noticeable leaps in every facet of the game. He became a more of an offensive threat while remaining an efficient shooter, connecting on over 50 percent of all of his attempts. He was also consistent from the 3-point line, posting a 41.9 percent clip last year.
Having someone the Dubs can rely on off the bench is pivotal to their title hopes. Haliburton fills this role perfectly, as an older prospect who is already accustomed to playing within a team system.
Another benefit to targeting Haliburton is that it’s likely he will be available later in the lottery. This allows the Warriors a chance to draft him even if they have bad luck in the lottery or elect to trade down in the order.
