With the seventh overall selection, staff writer Joe Kotoch has the Warriors taking forward Jared Sullinger out of Ohio State. Sullinger has shown his ability to dominate down low and could be a solid option down low.
"Sullinger silenced a lot of skeptics by measuring in at a legit 6'9" and toning up at the Chicago combine. Combined with his polished post game and on court IQ, Sullinger should be able to provide valuable minutes as a rookie backing up David Lee and Andrew Bogut."
The second selection that the Warriors have will be the 30th overall selection, in which he believes that Golden State will take another Big Ten product, Michigan State forward Draymond Green. According to Kotoch, Green does not have the "star power" that some other first-round prospects have, but that he should be a productive player for a long time.
As for the second round, Golden State has two selections. Kotoch believes that the Warriors will use them to select Xavier point guard Tu Holloway and Kentucky small forward Darius Miller. Holloway profiles to be the back-up point guard that the team desperately needs, while Miller could be a viable upgrade to the perimeter depth.
