Warriors reclaim No. 52 draft center Quentin Post – NBC Sports Bay Area and California

The Warriors selected him No. 52 overall in the 2024 NBA Draft after all.

Hours after trading the pick to the Oklahoma City Thunder for forward Lindy Waters III, the Warriors reacquired the pick for cash and used it on Boston College center Quentin Post, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reported, citing a source.

Born in the Netherlands, Post stands 7 feet tall and weighs 244 pounds. He spent five seasons in college, starting at Mississippi State before transferring to Boston College, where he spent the final three seasons.

As a senior at BC, Post averaged 17.0 points and 8.1 rebounds in 31.9 minutes in 35 games, all as a starter.

Post shot 51.4 percent from the field and 43.1 percent from 3-point range in his final collegiate season.

Citing Post’s lack of mobility and ability to be a 3D player, NBA.com’s draft profile compares him To NBA veterans Brook Lopez and Al Horford.

If Post can turn into any of these players, the Warriors will be very happy with this pick.

The Warriors don’t have any true 7-foot centers on their roster right now — Kevon Looney and Trace Jackson-Davis, both 6-foot-9, got the bulk of the minutes last season — so Post has a chance to carve out a role for himself if he can impress during Summer League and training camp.
