News: In an interview with Anthony Slater of The Athletic, Paschall said he's anticipating taking on a lesser role with Klay Thompson (knee) and Steph Curry (hand) expected back healthy. "I mean, I know I'm going to take a lesser role," Paschall said. "But I still feel I'm going to make an impact because I feel like I've proven myself. I feel like I'm ready to prove myself at the highest level."
Impact: Paschall joined the Warriors as a rookie under unique circumstances, as the team found itself in the midst of a holding pattern following five straight trips to the NBA Finals. After Curry injured his hand early in the season, Golden State shifted toward a full-on youth movement, enabling Paschall to step into a larger role than anticipated. Across 60 games, Paschall averaged 14.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists while making 26 starts and playing nearly 28 minutes per game. With a healthy roster next season, the Villanova product is aware he'll likely take a backseat, but he said he'll be ready to contribute to what should be a much more competitive roster. "The spacing's going to be ridiculous," Paschall said of playing alongside Curry and Thompson. "I can't wait for that."
