Golden State Warriors
- No. 28: Jacob Evans, Cincinnati
The rich continue to get richer.
After storming their way to their third NBA title in four years, the Golden State Warriors laced up their Chucks, waltzed on down to the 2018 NBA Draft, snagged a terrific wing prospect in Cincinnati’s Jacob Evans at No. 28, plopped him into a bag filled with Jordan Bell and three Larry O’Brien trophies, slung it over their shoulder and strolled on back to the Bay, whistling as they went.
I don’t mean to sound too nonchalant, but what else is there to say? The Warriors needed help on the wing. Check. They needed a cost-effective rookie who can contribute right away in spot minutes. Check. How about a tenacious defender, effective 3-point shooter and all-around contributor with a high basketball IQ? Check, check and checkmate, to the rest of the league.
