The Warriors worked out six draft prospects on Monday, all of which are either expected to be selected in the second round or go undrafted entirely.
Per Josh Schrock of NBC Sports Bay Area, Oregon small forward Eugene Omoruyi, Virginia small forward Sam Hauser, Arkansas point guard Jalen Tate, Austin Peay guard/forward Terry Taylor, and Houston small forward Justin Gorham and point guard Dejon Jarreau all took part in the workout.
Of those, Hauser is viewed as the most likely to be drafted. “While a lot of the NBA draft attention has focused on Gonzaga’s Corey Kispert as the class’ top tall, versatile shooter, Hauser is right there in terms of pure shooting ability and he excels at moving without the ball, using his intelligence to set up defenses and find open space,” Schrock wrote.
The Warriors own their own pick (No. 14 overall) and could end up with the Timberwolves’ pick, should it fall out of the top three. So they potentially be adding a healthy Klay Thompson and James Wiseman and two lottery picks next season.
They don’t own any picks in the second round, though those are fairly easy to acquire should they be interested.
The NBA Lottery is set for June 22, with the NBA Draft scheduled for July 29. The Warriors have a 2.4 percent chance to win the No. 1 overall pick.
