Big surprise for the Golden State Warriors. They get Harrison Barnes the small forward out of North Carolina. Most mock drafts had Harrison Barnes going well before the Warriors selected but the fact that he fell which is great news for Golden State. First of all he's a small forward which is a position the Warriors are targeting. And they wanna get somebody there that they can go with moving forward and Barnes is certainly that player. I think about boards and he doesn't do well he's not great at handling the ball and making plays for other players. But the reality is when Andrew Bogut and David Lee up front two very good passing big men. All you really need -- to do at this point is be a catch and shoot guy and that's something he can do very well. The fact that the Warriors are coming away with Harrison Barnes on draft night they got to be feeling very good about it.
