Can't really say yet. Apparantly Diogu and Ellis showed alot of potential in the Summer league games, particularly the last games. Taft is a sleeper and hopefully Mullin can inspire Taft to become what some have said he has the potential to become

Taft was in a lot of the mock drafts I checked for the 9th pick of the draft. Im sure were pretty lucky to have Taft and Diogu on the roster

Then again it does seem like Diogu will do a lot better that Taft.


But i still think we're lucky to have Taft on this roster too. :-o

Don't judge Taft to soon - He has skills that haven't really been noticed!

Feels good because it is being true!!!!
Try it more often - Not being a clown!!!!

Taft certainly will have a chance but if the rumors of his bad attitude are true, Mullin will not give him more than a day and will get rid of him and rightfully so!!!!!!!!

I think that eventually Murphy will lose his starting job to Diogu. Taft, Murphy, and Diogu will all be very useful this season. Im starting to worry about Foyle though he did miss a few dunks last season.

I think Diogu might have enough of a total package (defense, inside scoring and jump shot) to start by the end of this season or next season! He might just be a good enough shot blocker to make Foyle useless to Warriors! Taft is talented and will be good to hold on to if his attitude stays good!!!!

Still, Murphy with the rebounding and the great jump shooting is quite valuable. Lack of defense though makes him expendable!
