The Golden State Warriors recently brought Jerry West on board to help out with personnel decisions. West’s first splash was made in the 2011 NBA Draft. The Warriors had the 11th pick in the draft and went with Klay Thompson — a Jerry West favorite.
Thompson is a shooting guard who is the son of Mychal Thompson, the top pick in the 1978 NBA Draft. Thompson can shoot and is masterful on the pick-and-roll. His ceiling isn’t overly high but he should be a solid player on the pro level.
In the second round, the Warriors obtained Jeremy Tyler at 39 and Charles Jenkins at 44. Tyler has everything it takes to be an NBA player — other than maturity. If he grows up, the Warriors could have a steal.
As for Jenkins, he’s another scorer that will fit well alongside the numerous offensive threats on Golden State’s roster.
