PRE-DRAFT WORKOUT WISHLIST

Warriors are in the early stages of conducting draft workouts. So far, they've conducted and scheduled players projected to go late 1st to undrafted. There are a few nice names coming in like Joe Alexander, Brandon Rush, and Kosta Koufos, but I'd feel a lot more comfortable about the draft if they had at least a few big names already scrutinized. Teams like Trailblazers, Nets, Pacers, Nuggets, Raptors, and Suns have managed to look at higher profile players. Hopefully, the Warriors follow and get all the right players in by draft time which is less than three weeks away.

Here are a list of some players that should be brought in for private workouts and some dream matchups I'd like to see to determine who's name will be called at #14.
