2011 NBA Mock Draft: Golden State Warriors Take SF Kawhi Leonard

The Golden State Warriors have many, many, issues. Lots of them involve defense, but rebounding and athleticism are also a big issue. The Warriors were simply too lanky and were easily bullied by the more physical teams (even the average physical teams) in the league last season. After trading away much of their young athletic talent, Golden State is looking like they'll need to clean their slate.

So Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress has the Warriors looking at Kawhi Leonard to improve their medicore production at the small forward spot. Dorell Wright and Vladimir Radmanovic. Leonard would provide a much needed burst of athleticism at the three spot. He's very athletic, a solid rebounder, and has a lot of fundamental skills that should be of great use to him in Golden State.
