1. Tyrese Haliburton

The Golden State Warriors understand that they can’t play Stephen Curry 40 minutes a night. Someone will need to play minutes off the bench and give Curry a break. Can Tyrese Haliburton be that guy?

Ideally, the Dubs would need a player that can be trusted to keep the ship sailing smoothly. They don’t need a flashy sixth man that will light it up on some nights and disappear on others. Instead, the franchise needs a reliable contributor that will play to the team’s strengths.

This sums up what Halliburton did for Iowa State. He rarely strayed from his best assets as a playmaker and shot creator. Though he turned the ball over nearly three times a game, he dished out close to seven assists and ran the offense at a trustworthy rate.

Haliburton shot 50.4 percent from the floor and 41.9 percent from the 3-point line as a sophomore. He is talented enough to have an impact on the bench and has the mentality needed from a player in his role.
