Fresh off another NBA title, the Golden State Warriors are stocking up for next season.
With several marquee names off the board this late in the draft, the Warriors will have to look for a diamond in the rough. Considering their history of drafting well, which includes taking Steph Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson, GM Bob Myers has the trust of the organization.
Although their backcourt is already set, the Warriors have selected Cincinnati star Jacob Evans with the No. 28 overall pick.

Evans played with the Bearcats for three years, turning into an all-around threat in college.
His offensive game certainly needs work, but he shoots 37 percent from downtown and averaged 13 points per game in his junior season. More importantly, Evans' skillset translates perfectly in today's uptempo style of play.

Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston aren't getting any younger, which means Jacob Evans could find himself making an impact for the defending champions in 2018.
