Maybe they would eventually be good but within the next 2-3 years when the Warriors could still contend?
Because there have been a lot of wings drafted very high who've taken years to pan out.
Ingram is having a career year so far, in his 4th season, just before he's due for an extension.
Jalen Brown is shooting lights out, but again, it's his 4th season.
Tatum started out shooting real well but this year but in this 3rd season, he's increased the volume of attempts including from 3 and his efficiency has gone down.
Then go lower in the draft and a lot of wings have been busts, like Wesley Johnson, Hejonja, Stanley Johnson etc.
So I'm not sure replacing vets with mid-level rookies is a good idea for the next 2-3 years of contention.
yes, thse guys would be able to contend right way.
really i don't understand how people are enamored with Robinson or Burks or whoever is on this roster is right now, you can find guys like Robinson/Burks in FA literally every year for the minimum, every year.
the plan should be to upgrade those guys ASAP.
Sure, upgrade but not with the 10-20th players in this draft class.
Those would be marginally better-graded prospects than the Evanes, the Pooles, the Jones, the Bells, the McCaws that the Warriors have had to settle for the last 4-5 years.
My guess is, unless there's a huge deal to be made which would require trading them or turning them into some draft assets, Myers will wait and evaluate them vs. players they may like in the draft. If they see wings in the draft whom they think can play really well as rookies, they'll go for it.
My guess is, they only do that for top 5 or top 10 talent, not for players chosen in the mid teens or later.
And only because the top 5 or 10 players have high ceilings, though they may not hit those high ceilings while Curry and Klay are still top 10 and 1op 20 players.
again, says who? look at who was just drafted in that range this year, Thybulle, Washinghton, Herro, Bitadze, Clarke, and NAW...i'd take every single one of them TODAY over the players you mentioned. in 2018 you had Shai, Bridges, DiVincenzo, Okogie and Walker in that range, again I'd take all of them over the trash heap of players listed above.
and really, i still don't understand what your point is...are you saying you don't want to trade down because the players in that range aren't ready to contribute? that's not true. usually the lower you go down in the draft the higher floor players you find...top5-10 is when you're looking for ceiling, usually one-and-done players, not necessarily high floor guys. you have it backwards
and again...players like Damion Lee and Glen Robinson are literally available for cheap every single off-season, who the hell cares?
