2012 NBA Mock Draft: David Aldridge Sees Damian Lillard To Golden State

Weber State point guard Damian Lillard heads to the Golden State Warriors with the No. 7 overall pick in the mock draft from David Aldridge of NBA.com. Golden State hasn't been tied to Lillard much given the presence of another young scoring guard there, but Aldridge doesn't think that should stop the Warriors:

He's come on strong in the last month to become the consensus top pick at point guard. Yes, the Warriors have Steph Curry, but Curry's injuries the last two years have to give Golden State pause. The Warriors have a big man need, but none of them is good enough to take here. The one who could be, Andre Drummond, is just too big a risk at this point.

Curry is considered the cornerstone of Golden State's present-day roster, but he does have the injury questions that Aldridge mentions. He only missed eight games during the 2010-2011 season, but he sat out 40 of the team's 66 games during this year's abbreviated season. Still, it would admittedly be a surprise if Lillard goes to Golden State.
