Featuring the Warriors very own broadcasters - TIM ROYE & JIM BARNETT!
Join Warrior broadcasters Tim Roye and Jim Barnett for a special 2-hour NBA Draft Preview show, airing Monday, June 18th from 8-10PM on KNBR 680 AM.
Tim and Jim will focus on Golden State's draft positions and chat with General Manager Garry Saint-Jean, Assistant General Manager Gary Fitzsimmons and with Matt Steinmetz of the Contra Costa Times about the 2001 NBA draft and the Warriors future.
They'll be discussing players that other NBA teams are interested in working out and the moves they may possibly make.
Special guests will include ESPN's Andy Katz, with the NBA rumor mill, CBS Sportsline's Mike Kahn and draft guru Chris Monter of the Monter Draft News, who will be scrutinizing the players available in the draft: who's got game, who might have game, and who's got no game at all.
