The 2019 NBA Draft is upon us.
On Thursday, teams will assemble to hopefully select players that will be integral parts of their franchise for years to come.
Draft night is an especially important time for Bob Myers and the Warriors.
After suffering a devastating NBA Finals loss to the Toronto Raptors that saw both Kevin Durant (Achilles) and Klay Thompson (ACL) go down with severe injuries, the Dubs are in need of players who can provide depth next season, something they were lacking against the Raptors.
Golden State has the No. 28 overall pick Thursday night, which historically hasn't been a goldmine of talent, but there have been a few good players (and one likely Hall of Famer) to be taken at that position.
Here's a look at the three best players produced by that draft slot.
Tony Parker, PG, Spurs, 2001
Golden State Warriors
The best player ever selected with the No. 28 overall pick is a no-brainer.
During his surefire Hall of Fame career, Parker was a cornerstone of the Spurs' run from the early 2000s through the 2014 NBA Finals. Parker was a six-time All-Star, four-time NBA champion and was named the 2007 NBA Finals MVP.
For his career, the electric guard averaged 15.5 points and 5.6 assists per game while shooting 49.1 percent from the field and accumulating a PER of 18.2. He retired after this past season where he played for the Charlotte Hornets, his only non-Spurs season. If the Warriors can find a diamond in the rough like Parker, they won't be down on the mat for long.
Dan Roundfield, PF, Pacers, 1975
Dr. Rounds could straight up hoop.
The 6-foot-8 power forward was a three-time All-Star and five-time All-Defense selection. He played six years with the Atlanta Hawks, when he was at his peak, averaging 13.5 points per game and 10.7 rebounds while in the ATL.
For his career, Roundfield averaged 14.3 points and 9.3 rebounds while shooting 48.2 percent from the field.
Leandro Barbosa, G, Spurs, 2003
The rich history of great picks at No. 28 ends with Parker, but Barbosa was a solid role player during his NBA career, as Warriors fans know.
During his 15-year NBA career, Barbosa was a key piece of the seven-seconds-or-less Suns and a major role player for the 2015 NBA champion Warriors.
For his career, Barbosa averaged 10.6 points on 45.6 percent shooting. He was named Sixth Man of the Year in the 2006-07 campaign. He's exactly the type of player the Warriors hope to find Thursday night.
Honorable mentions: Tiago Splitter, C, Spurs (2007); Greg Ostertag, C, Jazz (1995); Wayne Ellington, SG, Timberwolves (2009; Dan Dickau, PG, Kings (2002).
The Warriors are in need of depth and the draft is a good way to find it. But at No. 28 overall, the Warriors will have to do their homework on all their potential options.
