The Warriors head into Thursday's NBA draft with four selections: The No. 7 pick, the No. 30 pick, the No. 35 pick and the No. 52 pick. While the Warriors would seem to have four positions pretty much set - point guard, shooting guard, power forward and center - the reality is that they could go in any direction come draft day.
Leading up to Thursday, we'll rank the top players at each position, and see whether or not they could fit into the Warriors' draft plans.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Kentucky, 6-7, 230 pounds: Back in January and December, when teams were playing, there was little doubt that Kidd-Gilchrist was considered the cream of the point guard crop. He was considered a sure-fire top-three pick along with Anthony Davis and Thomas Robinson.
He isn't much of an offensive player yet, but most believe that will come in time. What Kidd-Gilchrist already has is a pro body and competitiveness you can't teach.
Warriors angle: Maybe Kidd-Gilchrist is slipping some but it's still hard to see him falling all the way to Golden State at No. 7. If that happens, expect the Warriors to draft Kidd-Gilchrist and be very happy about it.
The more pertinent issue, though, is this: If the Warriors believe he'll fall all the way to, say, No. 5, do they have the wherewithal to have a deal in place with the Kings to make something happen on draft day?
