MercuryNews.comFew draft candidates illustrate the Warriors' quandary like Kansas' Xavier Henry.
With the sixth overall pick, the Warriors are likely too low to nab one of the no-brainer choices in the June 24 NBA draft, but they are high enough that they'll have some good players from which to choose. General manager Larry Riley said he prefers to go with the best player available over filling a need.
The last thing the Warriors need is a shooting guard. But what if the best player available is Henry, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard?
"They made it clear that they were really interested in me," Henry, 19, said Monday. "I think I showed them everything they wanted to see. I think I should at least be in contention for it."
