With the 41st overall pick, the 11th in the 2nd round, the Golden State Warriors have selected Eric Paschall of the Villanova Wildcats.

Paschall was the first Big East player off the board and will be a great fit with Golden State, aka the Villanova of the NBA. Paschall’s new team is fresh off an appearance in the NBA finals, and is widely considered one of the most talented rosters in the NBA.

One of those talented members is Draymond Green, a player that Paschall has often been compared to. Now he Green won’t just be someone he’s compared to, he’ll be his mentor as Paschall works to make the team and become the next great on the Warriors roster.
