Warrior Winners

The Warriors made Sean Deveney of the Sporting News winners list for the 2005 draft.

On the morning of the draft, Ike Diogu's stock had dropped, and the fact that he wasn't invited to New York by the league seemed a bad omen. There was no reason for the stock-drop, though. Diogu is one of the toughest, most mature players in the draft, with long arms and smarts. The Warriors grabbed him at No. 9, and he will help immediately with Golden State's biggest weakness -- interior toughness. The Warriors also picked two players with first-round potential, underachieving big man Chris Taft and high-scoring high school point guard Monta Ellis, in the second round.
