As most know by now, the 2020 NBA Draft is right around the corner. What will the Golden State Warriors do with their three picks?
While many people are still wondering what the Golden State Warriors will do with their second-overall pick, there’s some mystery around the two second-round picks they currently have as well.
The Golden State Warriors currently have the second overall pick in this year’s draft as that has already been established, but what isn’t talked about is their two secon- round picks. Second-round players are often overlooked, as they’ve shown with Draymond Green and Eric Paschall
This past season the Warriors had a player make the All-Rookie First-Team. Eric Paschall was that player, and many people are quick to forget where he was drafted.
Paschall was 41st overall, which means he was a second-rounder. The 24-year-old rookie was a big help off of the bench, averaging 14 points a game and four rebounds. He also started 26 of the 60 games he played last season.
Another Warriors’ rookie from last year is Jordan Poole from the University of Michigan.
Poole was taken in the first round by the Warriors at 28th overall, just 13 picks ahead of Paschall. Poole averaged just eight points, two rebounds, and two assist a game. He also played in 57 games and started 14 of those.
This just goes to show you that any team can find good players who can help their team in the second round. With the Warriors currently at the 48th overall pick and the 51st overall pick, there are a few second-round players they should target to help the team.
