Trey Murphy III shot

The Warriors last Friday held a six-player workout that included Chris Duarte and Trey Murphy III.

Both prospects will be back at Chase Center this weekend for further evaluation, Bleacher Report's Jonathan Wasserman reported Friday, citing sources.

Duarte rapidly is rising up mock draft boards, with The Athletic's Sam Vecenie, The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor and Wasserman all having him going No. 14 overall to the Warriors.

The Oregon product was a member of the Pac-12's All-Defensive team in 2020-21, and is considered one of the most ready-now players in the class.

As for Murphy, he averaged 11.3 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.8 steals during his junior season at Virginia, while shooting 50.3 percent overall, 43.3 percent from deep and 92.7 percent from the free-throw line.

The 21-year-old is 6-foot-7.5 inches without shoes on, boasts a 7-foot-0 wingspan and registered a 38-inch max vertical leap at the NBA combine.

"A tailor-made 3-and-D fit for today’s NBA," Vecenie writes. "He has extremely clean mechanics that project exceedingly well toward success at the next level.

"But more than that, he’s also a strong defender who moves his feet well and can slide to cut off penetration from opposing drivers."

That sounds like a pretty perfect fit in Golden State, but the Dubs might trade both of their lottery selections so stay tuned.
