Even when the Warriors do get lucky, by keeping their own pick, they are still a little bit unlucky.
In a draft that has a drop-off in talent after the top six players—well depending on how you feel about Andre Drummond (C, Connecticut)—the Warriors, unless something miraculous happens, (like when Stephen Curry fell into their laps) will have the pick from the best of the rest.
The Warriors really have two option here. They could just go ahead and take the best available player on their draft board, which might not necessarily fit a need, or they can take a small forward.
At pick No. 7, most of the players available would be a reach, but would fill a need.
Targets that could be taken include: Drummond if he lasts this long, Dion Waiters (SG, Syracuse), Damian Lillard (PG, Weber State) and Jeremy Lamb (SG, Connecticut).
Any one of these guards would move Klay Thompson to small forward, should they choose to go this route.
The Warriors could go big and select Meyers Leonard (C, Illinois) who has been impressive so far in his individual workouts. Selecting Leonard would give them insurance in case Andrew Bogut gets hurt.
If the Warriors want to fill a need then Terrence Jones (SF, Kentucky) and Perry Jones (SF/PF, Baylor) become their best options. Although both have unimpressed so far in their individual workouts, both have the potential to become the Warriors' next starting small forward.
