Default Klay Thompson did well at Warriors workout

The trendy draft pick to land with the Warriors at No. 11 overall finally worked out in front of Golden State executives. And Klay Thompson, according to a few onlookers, did not disappoint. The Washington State guard, one of the nation's top scorers as a junior, showed exactly why he's considered one of the sleepers in this draft. At Friday's private, six-player workout at the Warriors facility, Thompson flaunted his premier shooting stroke and high basketball IQ in front of co-owner Joe Lacob, coach Mark Jackson and the entire basketball operations staff.

Listed at 6-foot-7 with a 6-9 wingspan, he would bring much-needed size to the Warriors' backcourt. Thompson, who played three years in college, also figures to be ready to contribute right away. That's important for the Warriors, who can't trade the No. 11 pick to acquire veteran talent because teams are prohibited from trading first-round picks two years in a row. Their 2012 first-rounder went to New Jersey in the July 2008 trade for Marcus Williams. Bay Area News Group
