It is just over a month before the draft, and warriors have started their preseason draft workouts already.
I watched the videos for the first two workouts:
*key guys are in bold
Day 1 5/21
Jorge Gutierrez, Cal, guard
Jared Cunningham, Oregon State, guard
Chris Cooper, Old Dominion
Olek Czyz, Reno
Mindaugas Kupsas, Lithuania
Kyle Weems, Missouri State
I have to think that this was more of a warm up predraft exercise for the coaches.
Kind of getting on the same page with a group of players that they probably will not draft.
These guys are mainly combo guards, and seeing that we have Curry, Klay, Jenkins, and Rush, I doubt any one of these gets drafted by us, unless they impress. Undrafted player Jorge Gutierrez might get a training camp invite considering he is a defensive specialist, and we may have a need for that, or at least take a good look.
I wasn't really impressed with the interview by either of them:
Day 1 5/21
Quincy Acy, Baylor’s, Power Forward:
Drew Gordon, New Mexico’s, Power Forward
Kyle O’Quinn, Norfolk State
Wisconsin’s Jordan Taylor
Casper Ware, Long Beach State
Mitchell Watt, Buffalo
I think that these players have a legitamite chance of getting drafted by the warriors in the second round.
These are undersized hustle power forwards, which the warriors are in need of behind Lee. I liked Quincy Acy, former teammate of Ekpe Udoh, a real athletic hustle player as seen in the video above. Also, helps that he is Perry Jones teammate, a player who I think we could draft if we keep the number 7th pick.
Here is their interviews:
I'll keep posting as more predrafts interviews are published. Feel free to comment and post opinions, I have no real knowledge of these guys other then what I find online since I don't watch college hoops (except the final four NCAA tourney).
Discuss anything related to Golden State Warriors basketball here
Awesome thread; but don't forget, the Warriors didn't work out Stephen Curry or Brandan Wright, so anything can happen. I think their target is Harrison Barnes and they're hoping his stock drops off slightly leading up to the draft. And it's no secret, they'd really love to have MKG.

Yeah, I agree. Harrison Barnes would be awesome if he drops, or MKG, but we would probably have to move up.
Most of these predraft workouts is for the other 3 picks they have in my opinion. A lot of it will still depend on what happnes May 30th!
