Taft works out for the Warriors

DraftCity is reporting that Chris Taft struggled in his workout with the Warriors.

Chris Taft continues to drop like a rock

After reportedly stinking up the entire city of New York with the workouts he held over the past two weeks, Chris Taft has decided to take his show on the road. The latest stop was at Golden State yesterday, for an intimate meeting with Ike Diogu. The results, according to a person that was in the gym, were not pretty to watch. Basically Diogu scored on Taft repeatedly...again and again and again, until things started to get embarrassing. On the opposite side of the ball, Diogu stopped Taft in his tracks repeatedly and just thoroughly handed it to him. Things got so bad and Taft got so down on himself (again, in the opinion of this eye witness) that people thought he would just quit the workout. That never happened, but it was supposedly close.

Toronto’s general manager Rob Babcock, who got an up close and personal look at Taft, suggested earlier in the week that he “would certainly be better served by going back to school.” Unfortunately that’s just not really an option for Taft at this point, as he’s already hired an agent, New York City based Billy Ceisler, and forfeited any college eligibility he had remaining. If he had another season playing the way he did this past year, he probably would have zero shot at going in the first round anyway, so as sad as it sounds he appears to have made the right choice.

Now we know for sure, the Warriors are going to draft Taft. He has that Todd Fuller like potential.

wow taft is dropping like a rock. although diogu is interesting. i remmeber last year, had him in the top 10, might have been top 5 for this year. so he can play. it will be interesting to see how far taft falls and how far diogu can move up.

I don't know Todd Fuller. I would say more Chris Washburn.
