I know, but doesn't mean I am wrong =)

Results of Athletism tests:
Player - No-Step - Vert Max - Vert Bench - Agility - Sprint
Harrison Barnes - 38 - 39.5 - 15 - 10.93 - 3.16
Michael Kidd Gilchrist - 32 - 35.5 - 6 - 11.7 - 3.18


Measurment results
Name Height without shoes Height with shoes Weight Wingspan Standing reach Body fat (%) Hand length Hand width
Harrison Barnes - 6'7" - 6'8" - 227.8 - 6'11.25" - 8'6" - 9.6 - 9.00 - 8.50
Michael Kidd Gilchrist - 6'5.75" - 6'7.5" - 232.8 - 7'0" - 8'8.5" - 7.0 - 9.00 - 10.00


Barnes is more athletic, and has a slight height advatage and wingspan advantage (will come in handy rebounding and blocking shots).
Ok, so that only speaks for potential. If you compare what the did in College:

Harrison Barnes
SEASON TEAM MIN FGM-FGA FG% 3PM-3PA 3P% FTM-FTA FT% REB AST BLK STL PF TO PTS
2011-12 UNC 29.2 6.0-13.7 .440 1.3-3.6 .358 3.7-5.1 .723 5.2 1.1 0.3 1.1 1.8 1.9 17.1

Kidd-Gilchrist
SEASON TEAM MIN FGM-FGA FG% 3PM-3PA 3P% FTM-FTA FT% REB AST BLK STL PF TO PTS
2011-12 UK 31.1 4.0-8.2 .491 0.3-1.3 .255 3.6-4.8 .745 7.4 1.9 0.9 1.0 2.4 2.2 11.9

Barnes was a better scorer and shooter. Kidd Gilchrist was slightly better rebounder and shot blocker, but neither really stood out.
You also got to take into account that Kidd-Gilchrist was on a way better team.

Kidd-Gilchrist: http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/player/_/id/56352/michael-kidd-gilchrist


At the end, I think they are both good picks, but I give the slight advantage to Barnes.

Oh, and while looking up the stats I found a poll on NBADRAFT.NET that shows I am not the only one who thinks this:

Who is the top small forward prospect available for the draft this year?
Harrison Barnes

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Barnes does look good, especially athletically, but I'll take MKG given the choice. His measurements are better, bigger standing reach, wingspan and less body fat, which may indicate he is fitter. Height is almost the same and negligible, as skill overcomes that, especially such a small difference. As for the averages for last season in college, well that can be attributed to MKG being on a loaded Kentucky team.

It really comes down to having seen them play, because going by stats, anyone saying that MKG is even a lottery pick, let alone possible #2 pick, is somewhat insane.

I'm wondering which teams would want the Warriors 30th pick and be desperate enough to trade for it?

I would look into trading this pick + another one of our 2nd rounders to get a 1st round pick next year. Hopefully someone drops to 30 where someone would want to move up to get him. Unless another barrage of injuries occur, we're probably going to surrender our pick to Utah next year considering our improved roster. It also wouldn't hurt if we could package RJ/AB/DW + #30 + 2nd rounder for a future 1st.

I'd look to trade the #30 and all the 2nd rounders to move up, even if just to something like 24 or 25, but otherwise, probably better staying put and see what falls to #30.
