don't worry about the specific order
Wow, Warriors grab Moody at #7 and Kuminga somehow falls to them at #14! What luck! that's my story and I'm sticking to it

Let the hot takes fly now. We’ll be more sober tomorrow.
Wow. That was a nice haul. Thought Giddey could be the surprise pick, and he was, just at 6 instead of 7. So, roster decisions.
PG. 1. Curry 2. Poole 3. keep GP II as on ball defensive specialist
Nico Mannion one more year on a Two-Way
SG. 1. Klay 2. Moody 3. D Lee Jessup one more year in NBL
SF. 1. Wiggs 2. Baze (resign 3-yr 10m using some of TPMLE. He can give you starter minutes at 2/3 if needed, he's a vet, was great in 2nd unit next to Poole at end of year.)
PF 1. Dray 2. Paschall 3. JTA
C 1. Wiseman, 2. Looney 3. M Chriss (same deal as Baze using up partial TPMLE)
Veteran Free Agents? Can we do better than GP II, D Lee, Baze or Chriss in the FA Market? Sure. But as role players, I like all of these guys and there aren't questions about fitting into the system because they have all been in it. The question is, can GSW get an "Impact Vet" with TPMLE or Vet Min, someone who can be a top 8 rotation player in the Offs? If they can, great. If they can't, it looks like the bottom third of the roster can get filled out on the cheap with good guys we already know.
Bobby Marks: It would have been easy for the Golden State Warriors to trade either one of their lottery picks for much-needed bench help. Instead, they took a player in Jonathan Kuminga who could turn out to be the best player in a loaded draft. Moses Moody has top 10 potential, and Golden State picked him up at 14. Because Kuminga is more of a development project, expect the established Moody to see more playing time in 2021-22. One thing to remember is that the Warriors have limited financial flexibility due to the contracts of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins. Kuminga and Moody are on four-year contracts that total $42 million in combined salary.
