Cal's Allen Crabbe, now a member of the Portland Trail Blazers.
Nedovic was not a bad selection by Golden State, but it does raise some questions given the players who were still remaining at No. 30.
Local star Allen Crabbe (a product of Cal) was miraculously still available, and his 6'6" frame and deadly shooting ability would have been a nice insurance policy considering the team's injury-prone backcourt.
Kansas center Jeff Withey was also still on the board, and he could've provided the Warriors with a shot-blocker to fill in for the injured Festus Ezeli next season.
San Diego St. wing Jamaal Franklin somehow remained undrafted by No. 30, and his high-level athleticism and defensive ability seem to be the two things Golden State so desperately lacked last season.
The reason the Warriors passed on these three—and multiple others who could have added more to next year's roster—is that they don't want to add another player to the 2012-13 roster.
With 11 guys already under contract and a high probability that multiple free agents are still to be added, an extra player could become problematic. In Nedovic, the Warriors have a guy who they can develop overseas and bring in the season after next, when at least five contracts will come off the books.
