8. Devin Vassell (Draft/Trade)

Let’s shift our attention to the NBA Draft for a moment and explore a prime candidate for who the Golden State Warriors should target if they choose to slide back in the order.

The Warriors don’t need the second pick in the draft. They already have alpha dogs on this roster and aren’t in a position to rely heavily on a young star. Instead, the Dubs might be more interested in drafting a player who can fill a need immediately and succeed as a role player.

The ideal prospect for this scenario is Devin Vassell. This long-armed forward can play multiple positions and will make a killing as a catch-and-shoot threat at the NBA level. He has enough size to shoot over smaller opponents and will become even more valuable if he learns to shoot off the dribble.

Vassell is also a skilled defender. He uses his long strides to quickly cover ground and can reject shots from behind at a high-rate. If the Dubs choose to swap picks with another lottery team – it should be with the intention of picking up Vassell later in the draft.
