Santa Cruz Warriors Reload At Guard
One of the biggest reasons the Santa Cruz Warriors ended up being the runner up in the NBA D League two years in a row was due to the teams ability to have talent at guard. Santa Cruz lost Seth Curry to the Erie Bayhawks.
You thought that not having a guard would be a huge concern for the Warriors going forward. Santa Cruz reloaded at guard in the NBA D League draft by selecting two guards in the top 5 overall of the 2014 NBA D League Draft. Do not ask me how they got those picks. It is ridiculous enough that the two time runner up got two top 5 draft picks that allow them to reload.
Elliot Williams was a first round pick by the Portland Trailblazers in the 2010 NBA Draft following a dominant career at Memphis. Williams failed in the NBA as an effective starting point guard because injuries always affected him. He did better than most expected at Memphis after succeeding Derrick Rose.
Santa Cruz also added Carrick Felix as a shooting guard out of Arizona State. Felix has to succeed Curry on the Santa Cruz Warriors if this team wants to make another Title run.
Santa Cruz, like the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, should watch there championship run come to an end. Reloading at guard will make a huge difference. Elliot Williams and Carrick Felix should do enough to help the Santa Cruz Warriors get back to the playoffs this upcoming season.
