Golden State Warriors select Jordan Poole with No. 28 pick in 2019 NBA Draft

The Golden State Warriors selected Michigan sophomore guard Jordan Poole with the 28th pick in the 2019 NBA draft this evening at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Poole was the 10th Wolverine under John Beilein to be drafted in the NBA. The last Michigan player selected in the NBA Draft was Moritz Wagner by the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018.

Poole averaged 12.8 points, 3 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game as a sophomore. He will always be remembered for the game-winning 3-point shot that he made against Houston in the 2018 NCAA Tournament that sparked a run to the National Championship Game.

According to the 2019-20 NBA rookie salary scale, Poole is projected to earn $1.4 million next season.

    Everyone must apologize to Jordan.

    Poole can still have played poorly down the stretch and be worthy of a first round pick. Really happy for him.

    The point is that you draft based on potential not based on last year’s performance.

    Who has a higher ceiling? Edwards or Poole? Poole is younger, taller and has the potential to be way more than Edwards.

    How good does Jordan Poole think he is? Did he tell you that?

    In what sense did he “not shoulder criticism” or “make excuses”?

    I saw him sit answer questions after games honestly. Don’t remember him making excuses.
