Warriors viewing Josh Giddey as a strong possibility with No. 7 pick

According to a league source, the Warriors view Josh Giddey as a strong possibility with the No. 7 pick. At 6-foot-8, 185 pounds with preternatural passing ability and an improved jumper, he boasts an intriguing mix of ready-made NBA skills and long-term potential. Odds are that Giddey, who doesn’t turn 19 until Oct. 10, could fill a role for the Warriors next season as a secondary ballhandler off the bench.
A league source said that, in addition to Giddey, the Warriors would consider Connecticut guard James Bouknight, G League Ignite forward Jonathan Kuminga and perhaps one or two others at No. 7. Long a popular choice for the Warriors in mock drafts, Baylor guard Davion Mitchell likely won’t be Golden State’s pick because of concerns he doesn’t have enough upside to warrant a top-10 selection.
