The level of talent and lack of need beg for the team trading back
This point is a summation of it all.
The Warriors don’t need LaMelo Ball. They don’t need Anthony Edwards.
The high-profile talent that expects to come in and start immediately is not what they need. They either one of two things — the quintessential fit or a high-potential prospect that is open to sitting and developing on the second unit.
Think of a player like Hayes or James Wiseman for each of those scenarios. Around 7-11, the talent like that will be there. With frontcourt as obvious need, Wiseman doesn’t have to be the play.
6-foot-9 power forward Onyweka Okongwu from USC could a prime target or even forward Deni Avidija. One of those four players is likely to be available later in the lottery and would be a nice fit with this franchise.
The Warriors aren’t the typical team at the top of the lottery. They can take two or three years and train a young guard as long as they get what they’re looking for in order to forward their Finals potential as well.
The ability to get both of those is why it’d be best to trade back in the 2020 NBA Draft.
