Despite having two selections in the second round in 2022 NBA DraftThe Golden State Warriors They still decide to buy their way. According to multiple reports, Dubs sent cash and pick number 51 to Atlanta Hawks to get pick number 44. Then they used this pick on Ryan Rollins, a guard from Toledo, and Number 33 on the big board for Athletic.
Rollins was an instant impact player in college, earning the MAC Rookie of the Year in 2020-21 after averaging 13.7 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.1 steals per game in 30 starts for Toledo. He took a huge step forward as a sophomore, averaging 18.9 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.7 steals per game with more efficient shooting scores. While Rollins has the potential to be a valuable combo ranger, Warriors can also covet Rollins’ unique defensive capabilities. Despite measuring less than 6’5” at the stake, Rollins has a nearly 6’10” who sold his wings and showed impressive defensive intensity.
Earlier in the night Dubs Use pick #28 on Patrick Baldwin Jr. of Milwaukee. They also have an upcoming No. 55 pick.
There is a good chance the Warriors will try to use a two-way contract with Rollins. With a rookie at Baldwin, second-year players Jonathan Kominga and Moses Moody, and a third-year player who appeared in just 39 games at James Wiseman, they probably wouldn’t want to burn any more existing player rosters. t ready to contribute immediately.
But Rollins is an exciting player, and it would be fun to follow him in the Summer League.
