NBA Draft 2013: Minnesota Timberwolves Select Andre Roberson With No.26 Pick


Minnesota has been active here on draft night; this time they will deal this pick to the Golden State Warriors.

With the 26th pick, the Warriors landed Andre Roberson out of Colorado.

At 6’7″ with great athleticism and length, Roberson is a great rebounder. In his junior season, he averaged 11.2 per contest, including 3 offensive boards.

Golden State will look to get out in the open court offensively just as they did this year. Roberson’s size, length, and rebounding ability will allow them to play him as an undersized power forward, similar to the way that they used Harrison Barnes in the playoffs after David Lee went down due to injury.
