3. Eric Paschall

Eric Paschall is one of the best things that happened to Golden State this season for a few reasons. The franchise drafted Paschall in the second round (No. 41 pick) of last year’s NBA Draft.

Obviously, the forward is receiving playing time because of the team’s depleted roster due to injury. Nonetheless, Paschall is making the most out of his opportunities this season and has caught the attention of his peers.

Paschall is currently averaging 14 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game while shooting 49.7 percent from the floor. He is a physical player who can get to the rim and finish with either hand and he commits to the defensive end of the floor.

Couple with his ability to finish at the rim and play defense, he is a player who soaks up the knowledge from his teammates. During timeouts and change of possessions you can see Green, Thompson, or head coach Steve Kerr teaching him on the fly.

Although Paschall’s height may cause some concern, his physical style of play and ability to contribute on both sides of the floor will help him. Also, his game is somewhat similar to Green’s, except he looks to score a bit more.
