Warriors unlikely to draft Lamelo so it looks like the pick will be Wiseman or Ant-Man.
Hm.. I'm one of those who would be okay with Ws picking LaMelo. While he would be ball dominant and not a fit as a starter, I think he can be first off the bench and run the second team. He also could play some minutes at PG while Steph or Klay are taking a breather. The question is will he be a long term fit for GSW and that may be a negative unless something happens while being with the team. I think he'll be someone who will sell tickets and thus intriguing to teams who don't draft him and already have a big man such as the Knicks. He is a marketing magnet for younger fans and already Puma has given him a $100 million contract with private jet use. IOW, there will likely be a trade for him during the season if not on draft day.
Thus, I don't agree with the report and think the Warriors brass can take advantage and make the best use of LaMelo if they draft him at #2.
You want Ball? Head back to the General Board
Easy now, we all just want the team to get better and I can understand that there is some anxiety with all the moves that took place Monday night that kind of left the Warriors out in the cold. We will see what happens as things develop, but there is no 100% correct move here.
