There is a chance the Golden State Warriors find themselves selecting later in the NBA Draft order. Here are three sleeper options to look at.
Although the Golden State Warriors are the favorites to win the NBA Draft Lottery, there are still a few reasons why they may end up selecting farther down in the order.
For starters, the Warriors are just one of three teams to hold the highest odds of winning the lottery. The Minnesota Timberwolves and Cleveland Cavaliers will each be granted a 14 percent chance at securing the top pick.
This means, there is over an 80 percent chance the Warriors don’t land the first overall pick. In fact, there is about a 50 percent chance they fall out of the top four altogether.
Not to mention, the Warriors haven’t been shy about letting the world know they are keeping their options open to a trade. The Dubs aren’t really in need of an up-and-coming rookie and could be better off trading down in the draft to acquire more assets.
Either way, the Dubs need to be scouting as many prospects as possible. It’s time to take a deeper look at three sleeper picks in the 2020 NBA Draft.
