Pre-draft Sunday


Curry averaged 28.6 points his junior season at Davidson and was a first-team All-American while making a successful shift from shooting to point guard. Still, in a point-guard heavy draft, his stock has skyrocketed.

How did this happen?

The key moments occurred at the NBA draft combine in late May, where Curry measured 6-31/4 in basketball shoes, shot the ball as beautifully as he always does and impressed everyone with his general Opie Taylor goodness.

“A lot of NBA general managers and executives had thought he was just a 6-1 scrawny kid who could shoot,” Dell Curry said. “They got to that combine and realized he was more than that.”

Bonnell: A safe pick in a dicey draft because he’s such a reliable jump-shooter and smart passer.
