Reviewing the Warriors' draft history

Programming note: Tune in to the Chronicle Live Warriors Draft special tonight at 5 and 11 p.m. on Comcast Sportsnet Bay Area! "With the sixth pick in the BAA draft, the Warriors select Chink Crossin from the University of Pennsylvania."

Believe it or not, that's what you would have heard if you were watching the 1947 BAA draft, when the Warriors made the first draft pick in their franchise history. Crossin only averaged 4.7 points in 147 career NBA games, but odds are that you've forgiven the Warriors for that mistake.

Have you forgiven the team for all of its draft errors over the years? Probably not.

For a walk down memory lane - the good and the bad - check out this list of the Warriors' complete draft history, courtesy of Basketball-Reference.com. When it comes to certain names, you might want to hide your eyes.

And feel free to share your memories of these players - the good and the bad.

Suns guard sustains torn ACL in left knee

Brandon Knight may not take the floor next year.

The Suns guard tore the ACL in his left knee and could miss the entire season, the team announced on Tuesday afternoon.

He sustained the injury last week while playing in Florida.

Knight's production fell off during the 2016-17 campaign, when he appeared in just 54 games.

He averaged career lows in practically every category -- points (11.0), assists (2.4), rebounds (2.2), steals (0.5), field goal percentage (39.8) and 3-point percentage (32.4).

The year prior, he registered 19.6 points, 5.1 assists and 3.9 rebounds per contest.

Knight entered the league as the eighth overall pick in the 2011 draft.

After two seasons with Detroit, he was traded to Milwaukee.

In February 2015, he was traded to Phoenix.

Knight is scheduled to make over $13.6 million next season, over $14.6 million in 2018-19 and over $15.6 million in 2019-20.

With Kyrie Irving reportedly requesting a trade from Cleveland, several national reporters have listed the Suns as a potential landing spot for the All-Star guard...

Report: Blazers trade Allen Crabbe

Allen Crabbe will end up in Brooklyn after all.

The Blazers will trade the shooting guard to the Nets, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

In exchange, Brooklyn will send big man Andrew Nicholson to Portland.

Nicholson will not suit up for the the Blazers, as Portland will waive and stretch his contract.

Last summer, Crabbe -- who was a restricted free agent -- signed a 4-year, $75 million sheet from the Nets.

The former Cal star returned to the Pacific Northwest because the Blazers matched the offer.

Last season, Crabbe averaged a career-best 10.7 points per game, while shooting just under 47 percent from the field and over 44 percent from deep.

He averaged just 5.5 points in the opening round of the playoffs against the Warriors.
