The Warriors selected Vanderbilt center Damian Jones with the last pick of the first round.
It might not be fair considering Festus Ezeli’s struggles in the playoffs but given where Jones was selected late in the first round and the chance Ezeli leaves Golden State they’ll probably be compared quite a bit. He’s a bit leaner and he’s not quite as physical, but they have the same middling skill-sets on both sides of the ball that can be useful in a backup role.
Update: Jones won’t play in Summer League and might not be ready for camp.
Damian Jones won't play in the summer league (pectoral surgery) and might not be ready for camp. Patrick McCaw will play in summer league.
