Golden State of Mind Discusses Pick of Udoh

New, 4 comments

Golden State of Mind has a thread discussing the team’s selection of Udoh.

I’m actually surprised the Warriors didn’t sell the pick. You know, clearing cap space- before a player even counts against the cap. I guess that’s innovative (?).

Also, Yahoo! Sports had this to say about the pick.

It’s only fitting that a troubled franchise lacking stable ownership and leadership would make the first head-scratching pick of the night. Ekpe Udoh blossomed in his lone year at Baylor because of his solid mid-range game, shot-blocking and hustle, but does the former Michigan transfer have the explosiveness or the upside to justify the No. 6 pick? If not, he’ll add to Golden State’s collection of failed frontcourt lottery picks. — Jeff Eisenberg
