  • Warriors Facebook Fans
  • Rusty Simmons, San Francisco Chronicle: Best passer in Draft ... and he's 6-11.
  • Tom Ziller, AOL FanHouse: I must say it could be a real blast to see Stephen Curry and Monta Ellis dive backdoor for a Monroe bounce pass.
  • Jeff Goodman, FOXSports.com: He may not be a big-time athlete, but he knows how to play -- kind of like the Warriors' pick a year ago -- Stephen Curry.
  • Ryan McNeill, Hoops Addict
  • Dime Magazine: Offensively skilled big man with a high basketball IQ is too perfect for the Warriors’ offensively potent system.
  • Ryan Feldman, The Hoops Report
  • Tony Mejia, Pro Basketball News: His size and passing skills would make life easier for Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry.
  • Jonathan Feigen, The Sports Xchange/CBSSports.com: Monroe would be the solid big man the Warriors have lacked.
  • Trey Kerby, Ball Don't Lie: His passing ability makes him a logical pick
  • Draft Depot
  • About.com, Charlie Zegers: Monroe seems like the type of player Don Nelson would love to have.
  • Brian Levenson, CBSSports.com: He he gives you a legit center to play pick and roll with Curry.
  • MyNBADraft.com: He is a traditonal 4 who is big strong and plays better down low than on the perimeter.

  • Marcus Thompson II, Contra Costa Times: Risky with a legit big man in Monroe here.
  • Jonathan Givony, Draft Express: He’s able to step out to the midrange and make an impact while also displaying the length and fluidity to get to the rim.
  • Chad Ford, ESPN.com: If the Warriors keep the pick, they're deciding between Greg Monroe and Ekpe Udoh.
  • College Hoops Update: Udoh is a supreme interior defender and emerging scorer.
  • NBA Draft Room: Good explosiveness let's him block shots and guard the rim. On offense he can play with his back to the basket or step out and drain jumpers.
  • Dave Del Grande, The Sports Xchange/CBSSports.com: Udoh fits the club's greatest need a whole lot better than Cousins.
  • InsideHoops.com
  • Mike McGraw, The Sports Xchange/Yahoo! Sports: He’s mature, versatile and athletic, and his stock has been rising as he’s toured the league’s practice gyms.
  • Matt Steinmetz, CSN Bay Area: He can rebound, score a little and is an above average passer for a big man.

  • Christopher Reina, Real GM: Aminu was my first instinct for the Warriors weeks ago and he makes even more sense following the Corey Maggette trade.
  • NBADraft.net: More than just a highlight reel type player, Aminu would be a great fit on a team that wants to run and gun.
  • Steve Alexander, Rotoworld/NBC Sports: His stock is still rising and he could play meaningful minutes for the Warriors next season.
  • Jordan Schultz, AOL FanHouse: Aminu's best attributes are his scoring, insane athleticism, and of course, that little thing called upside.
  • Ridiculous Upside: Aminu is an athletic tweener that can play both forward spots in the Warriors offense - and we know how much Don Nelson loves to play Nellieball with versatile players all around the court.
  • Allen Moll, The Hoop Doctors: Aminu measured well at the combine with an amzing 7
