What They're Saying ...
"The Warriors don't need the same foundational pieces other lottery teams do, so Toppin is the most appealing choice here based on his immediate upside. At 22, Toppin is older than most of his counterparts, and his high motor and highlight-reel dunking translate perfectly with Steph Curry in the open court. USA TODAY Sports' national college basketball player of the year can do a mix of everything, including stepping out on the perimeter and mastering pick-and-rolls." – Scott Gleeson, USA Today
"His all-around repertoire, and stellar reputation, has turned him into the kind of prospect that general managers will find hard to pass on... He shot 69.8% from 2-point range and developed into a more-than-OK 3-point shooter (39.0%). His defensive potential is also substantial. Good wingspan, broad shoulders, can handle the ball well and understands how to play in space... Should be a wonderful NBA player for about a decade." – Matt Norlander, CBS Sports
