NBA Draft 2019: Warriors Select Jordan Poole With No. 28 Overall Pick

With the 28th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft on Thursday, the Warriors selected guard Jordan Poole out of the University of Michigan. 

Poole, a two-year player at Michigan under new Cavaliers head coach John Beilein, averaged 12.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game for the Wolverines last season. Measuring 6-foot-5.5 with an average 6-foot-6.75 wingspan, Poole -- who turned 20 years old Wednesday -- has the size to play both guard positions. 

With Klay Thompson expected to miss a significant portion of next season recovering from a torn ACL and Shaun Livingston potentially considering retirement, the Warriors needed to add some young depth to their backcourt, and the selection of Poole accomplishes that.
