Now the draft process can officially begin for the Golden State Warriors. They have named their next head coach, a solid assistant coach and hired a basketball legend as an adviser to the team.
Things are looking up in Golden State.
As for the business at the 11th pick in the 2011 NBA draft on June 23, the available options are nothing to write home about.
The upcoming draft is already being written down as a four-man draft with a boatload of players from Europe. How those players from Europe will do in the NBA will be discovered in the next few years.
The Warriors, however, have not been shy in stating what they want in this draft. Owner Joe Lacob has said they will draft the best available player, but the increasing need of a big man under the basket, as well as a good defender somewhere on the floor, has got to be a top priority for the team.
