NBA Draft 2022: Warriors choose Brazilian Gui Santos with No. 55 selectie squad

With their final roster for the 2022 NBA Draft, the Warriors picked Brazilian forward Gui Santos at number 55.

The Warriors will likely hide the 20-year-old abroad.

Listed at 6-foot-8 and 210 pounds, per ESPN, Santos has played four seasons for Minas in the Novo Basquete Brasil (NBB).

During the 2021-2022 season, Santos averaged 10.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 25.7 over 37 games for Minas.

Here’s what ESPN NBA concept analyst Jonathan Givony wrote about Santos:

“Santos is a long-armed wing with a strong frame that has made significant improvements in Brazil over the past two seasons. He boasts a nice blend of versatility, fluidity and physicality attacking the edge while constantly competing defensively and on the glass. Santos is not yet consistent enough as a shooter and is still developing into a more all-round all-round scorer. He handled the ball more this season and showed strides with his passing ability.”

Although Santos is a draft-and-stash player, the Warriors selected two players who may be able to help them into the first round next season, Patrick Baldwin Jr. (No. 28) and second-rounder Ryan Rollins (No. 44).
