Nickel and Dimin' for a 3.0

DimeMag gave the Warriors a solid B for their 2005 draft.

Golden State was clearly looking for front line rebounding help and they got it in Ike Diogu. Diogu is a monster in the paint, attacking the glass like his life depends on it. Couple that with his improving offensive game and the Warriors have themselves a solid post player to go to work with Troy Murphy under the hoop. High schooler Monta Ellis is an intriguing talent and could be molded into an NBA point guard in time. Golden State’s third pick, Chris Taft at #42, is well worth the gamble. If he ever figures it out, he could be a steal.
Grade: B
