The Golden State Warriors are, once again, heading into an NBA Finals as the seemingly overwhelming favorite – and why wouldn’t they? On a roster littered with lottery picks, future Hall of Famers and brilliant role players with a terrific head coach in Steve Kerr leading the charge, the Warriors should be the favorites every year.

However, despite all of the team’s top-end talent, there is still room for improvement on the bench and on the margins, and the team will look to make those improvements in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Though it might seem like his skill set is a bit redundant, Tyler Herro out of Kentucky would make for a strong choice at #28 overall. Herro, who has deemed himself “a bucket” during the 2018-19 regular season, certainly lived up to that bill in college.

Herro is a terrific shooter off movement, and he is comfortable shooting from NBA distance – as his 113 NBA-range three-point attempts per The Stepien would attest.

Herro shot well at all three levels per Bart Torvik, with a 66.7 percent clip at the rim, a 46.7 percent clip on non-rim twos and a 35.5 percent clip from three-point territory. Perhaps most importantly, Herro shot 93.5 percent at the free throw line to lead the nation per KenPom. Since free throw percentage is often a better indicator of NBA shooting success, that’s music to the Warriors’ ears.
