The Euroleague Yesterday he decided to cancel the 2019/20 season and this is something that will affect the next NBA Draft. Several were the teams that were planning to travel to Europe to study players they were interested in.
It is the case of Golden State Warriors, which right now is the franchise with the most options to take number 1, and which has its eye on the Maccabi Tel-Aviv player Deni Avdija. The 19-year-old Israeli boy hopes to be chosen among the top 5 spots in the next draft.
According to ESPN this would be the top 10 in this year’s draft:
10- RJ Hampton

The Warriors had planned for their coach Steve Kerr to travel to see Théo Maledon and Killian Hayes and the Californian team’s development director, Kent Lacob, was to travel to Europe to analyze Avdija’s game. Logically, the coronavirus pandemic has canceled all these plans.
We suppose that the technicians of the Warriors will be analyzing in depth all the options in videos and that they will be more or less clear about their possible choices for the next draft.
It must be said that the numbers of the Israeli in the Euroleague were not to shoot rockets. In 26 games he has averaged 4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 14.2 minutes of play. In the Israel Basketball Super League his numbers have been much better because he has had a bigger role in the team: in 21 games he has averaged 12.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 26.6 minutes.
