Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody -- the No. 7 and No. 14 overall picks in last month's NBA draft -- have been quite impressive through two Summer League games.

Hey Steve Kerr -- do you think either of them will be consistent rotation players next season?

"I think it’s impossible to say one way or the other," the Warriors' head coach said to The Athletic's Tim Kawakami on Wednesday morning. "You’ve got to see someone in practice every day to determine if they’re ready to play or not.

"But I’m excited. They’re both really good prospects. They both look the part, for sure. I really respect the job that Bob [Myers] and Joe [Lacob] and the staff did."

Kerr is right. It is way, way too early to have any idea of what their roles might be as rookies.

After adding Otto Porter Jr., Nemanja Bjelica and Andre Iguodala in free agency, the Warriors should be a much deeper team in 2021-22 -- assuming full health of course.

For now, Warriors fans just should enjoy watching Kuminga and Moody in Las Vegas, and get to know what they can do on the court.

Finally, Kerr was at the Olympics in Tokyo the night of the draft. Did he Zoom in to Golden State's draft room?

"I was not," he told Kawakami. "I was talking with Bob [Myers] before the draft. I was watching the draft in our coaches’ office in the Tokyo Hilton.

 

"He trusts me to coach the team. I trust him to put the team together. We work together beautifully and we enjoy the process together. So I’m excited about how it all turned out."
