On October 23, Beijing time, according to The Athletic report, on Thursday morning local time, Warriors coach Steve Kerr and other team staff tried out popular rookie Denis Afdia in Atlanta. The source revealed that this was a positive meeting and the 19-year-old Israeli talented player left a deep impression on everyone. Afdia not only performed well in the trial training, but he also impressed the members of the Warriors delegation during the meeting. They generally think that this is a child with excellent professionalism.
Less than a month away from the 2020 draft, the Warriors are still in the information gathering stage. If the Warriors are going to choose Afdia, they can choose him directly with the second pick, or trade down to a certain position and choose him. The Athletic believes that if the Warriors have decided to trade the second pick, Cole will not fly to Atlanta (where Afdia currently lives) to investigate this promising young man.
Avdia is 2.06 meters tall and weighs 95 kilograms. In the 2019-20 season, Denis Avdia won the Celtics League Championship with the team and became the youngest MVP in the history of the Israeli League. Avdia has a handsome appearance and superb skills, and many media have compared him to the "next Dongcic".
Avdia高2.06米，重95公斤。在2019-20赛季，丹尼斯·阿夫迪亚（Denis Avdia）与该队一起赢得了凯尔特人联赛冠军，并成为以色列联赛历史上最年轻的MVP。 Avdia具有英俊的外表和精湛的技巧，许多媒体将他与“下一个Dongcic”相提并论。
If he joins the Warriors, what role will he play? As a big wing, his ball control and passing ability are very good, and his position on the court may overlap with Dreamcatcher and Pascal. If the Warriors pursue their dreams in future transactions, Avdia could become his successor.
How should the Warriors reinforce the current lineup? There have always been two more mainstream suggestions. One is to upgrade to the fifth position and choose Wiseman to improve the strength of the center. The other is to make up for the comprehensiveness lost in the past few years and find one. A player similar to Iguodala, Afdia can play such a role.
The NBA Draft, a professional drafting website, rated Afdia with a comprehensive ability value of 94. Among them, potential, passing and intangible assets are 9 points, and ball control, jumper, leadership and body are 8 points. His draft template is Turkoglu, a forward with outstanding passing ability.
In the latest mock draft list, Afdia was picked by the Warriors with the second pick in the first round. Will this prediction become a reality?
