One could say that smart Californians look north. And the Warriors are proving themselves to be pretty darn smart.
It didn't seem like the Dubs would have much to say at the draft this year but that was clearly my failure of imagination. The Warriors proved they have plenty of imagination.
Jordan Bell looks like a great fit for the Warriors.
At 6’9”, the 2017 Pac-12 Defensive Player Of The Year, he's already positioned as a Draymond Green protégé. Good on him.
But the Oregon connection doesn't stop with Bell. The Warriors also signed Bell's teammate Chris Boucher.
Boucher wasn't drafted, likely because he was injured during the Pac-12 tournament this past March. But his college record on both ends of the floor are impressive.
