who can we get at #9?

Let's look back and check the resources and see what COULD be available at # 9 for the Warriors. We know the Warriors need an athletic big man to go with all their backcourt, so lets assume that the Warrorirs will draft on need which is what they normally do. ESPN.com has the warriors taking Chris Taft out of Pitt. I'll say this....being a Univ. of the Pacific alum and watching pitt play pacific in the 1st round of the NCAA's i can honestly say...i am not impressed...if we're gonna draft a Pitt player....chevon troutman was way better, but then again we dont need another SF. So lets look at some other options and fast risers. At first it seemed that the warriors COULD get high school phenom Gerald Green at 9 but it seems that scenario has gone by the way side....seeing that he will probably go to charlotte or to the rebuilding of new orleans. Other sites have the warriors picking up channing frye. Ok, he may not be too bad, but lets look at the facts, he plays in the pac-10 where there arent many good big men. The ultimate down side is the fate of previous arizona centers that have made an impact.....Loren Woods...still in the league....but not doing much as a 10 man.....AJ Bramlet...one national championship....probably stuck in Europe or Argentina....so I think Frye might not be the way to go. We COULD get raymond felton, but that seems unlikely with the warriors having fish and BD...so nothing more needs to be said there...Other solid picks would be an athletic yet undersized Hakim Warrick...this is my personal pick but who knows what the warriors think.....other good PF's could be Ike Diogu outta ASU(unpolished)....roni turiaf(will be a fan favorite...but unpolished, underiszed and possible unproven).......and Charlie Villanueva(streamlined with no hair....will be athletic and provide high-lights).....after all thats been said....i think the final two should come down the BIG EAST boys....hakim warrick or villanueva.....but with my 2 cents being said....afterall...its the warriors....so we shall never know until late june.
