The Golden State Warriors didn’t expect much from Eric Paschall in his first season in the league.

However, Paschall, who was selected by the Warriors with the 41st overall pick in 2019, exceeded everyone’s expectations. The 23-year-old rookie became the first Warriors player to be named to an All-Rookie Team since 2013, and the latest draft selection in franchise history to accomplish that feat.

Warriors assistant general manager Kirk Lacob knows that they have a star in the making in Paschall. During a recent interview with Forbes’ Patrick Murray, he explained what excites him the most about Paschall.
