Golden State Warriors Roster Report 2008-08-29

Golden State Warriors Roster Report 2008-08-29

Anthony Randolph, F, 6-10, LSU -- The slender forward will have to be more perimeter-oriented in the NBA than he was in college. Some see him as another Rashard Lewis; others say Jonathan Bender.

Richard Hendrix, F, 6-9, Alabama -- The Southeastern Conference's leading rebounder becomes the club's toughest interior force from the first moment he steps onto the court.

BIGGEST NEEDS: In order to build upon the momentum of a 48-win season, the Warriors must forget about the departure of Baron Davis and focus on the addition of four key newcomers -- Marcus Williams, Corey Maggette, Anthony Randolph and Ronny Turiaf.

FREE AGENT FOCUS: The Warriors entered the off-season with a remarkable 10 free agents. They chose to retain just Monta Ellis, Andris Biedrins and Kelenna Azubuike. The biggest loss: Mickael Pietrus to the Magic.


--G Marcus Williams is expected to open the season as the Warriors' starting point guard with Monta Ellis on the shelf. Ellis, who suffered a high ankle sprain that required surgery, may not return until December. The Warriors will lean heavily on Williams, who was acquired in an offseason trade with New Jersey.

--F Anthony Randolph, the Warriors' lottery pick in June (No. 14 overall), was everything Chris Mullin had raved about on draft night during his Golden State debut in summer-league action. The 6-foot-10 forward out of LSU averaged 19.1 points and 7.3 rebounds in eight games. Among his many skills: free-throw shooting. He went 60 of 73 (82.2 percent).

--G Anthony Morrow wasn't just impressive in summer-league play. He was the best. The 6-foot-5 Georgia Tech product was voted the MVP of the Rocky Mountain Revue in Salt Lake City after averaging 21.0 points and 6.5 rebounds while making 11 of his 16 three-point attempts.

--G DeMarcus Nelson was best-known to Californians as the state's all-time leading scorer during his high school career with 3,462 points. The 6-foot-4 guard, a defensive standout at Duke, probably played his way into someone's training camp by seeing action in all nine summer-league games for the Warriors, averaging 8.8 points and 2.9 assists.
