Harrison Barnes was a projected Top 5 pick for months leading up to the NBA draft. With the No. 7 overall pick, the Golden State Warriors could not ask for much more than what they received in Barnes.
He's a solid perimeter shooter who will complement Stephen Curry in the backcourt nicely next season.
After that, it was no secret the Warriors needed some help for Andrew Bogut down low. That is precisely why Festus Ezeli out of Vanderbilt was a quality selection with the last pick of the first round.
The 22-year-old center averaged over 10.0 PPG, 6.0 RPG, and 2.0 BPG his last two seasons in school. He won't be a game changer, but he offers some assistance to the Warriors very weak frontcourt.
Draymond Green, the All-American out of Michigan State, was then selected in the second round with the 35th overall pick. This is a guy who I absolutely love.
Green may not be the best player in any aspect of the game, but he plays hard and his desire to win goes unmatched.
He'll be a staple-point in the league as a solid role-player for quite some time, mark my words.
With their last selection at No. 52, the Warriors took a chance on Ognjen Kuzmic, the 7'1" center from Bosnia and Herzegovina.
He most recently played in Spain and likely will not make the leap to the NBA for at least another couple of years. That is, if he's ever actually ready to make the leap.
