Ellis has company in Thompson

Posted in Fantasy Basketball by DoubleDribble 182 days ago (
Maybe the last thing the Warriors needed was another shooter. They believe Klay Thompson was just too good not to take. Golden State drafted the Washington State guard with the 11th pick in the NBA Draft on Thursday, adding another potent shooter to an already crowded backcourt. "We will address our issues. But this was an opportunity that we couldn't pass up," new coach Mark Jackson said. "Who's to say we didn't get better today?" Warriors GM Larry Riley called the guard the best pure shooter in the draft earlier this week. Whether he is the right fit for Golden State will be known soon. Thompson led the Pac-10 last season with 21.6 points per game to go with 4.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists. The 6-foot-7 guard gives some size to the smaller Stephen Curry-Monta Ellis duo, although he's another perimeter player not known for defense.
