Warriors leaning towards Udoh?

ESPN's Chad Ford reports that if DeMarcus Cousins is off the board at No. 6 (he is expected to be drafted in the top five selections), the Warriors are leaning towards Ekpe Udoh and not Greg Monroe as previously reported. The reason? Monroe had a poor workout with Golden State [...]
