The Golden State Warriors have a 14% chance to secure the top pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. What if they miss out on that and land at No. 2?
There’s a 100% chance the Golden State Warriors secure a top-five pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. After initially trading the pick to Brooklyn, the Warriors brought it back home because they originally put a top-20 protection on it.
Now, the Warriors have a 40% chance at selecting in the top three and a 14% chance at the top pick. With those picks, there will be a plethora of players available with no one star hogging all the spotlight.
In this rundown, we’re going to assume LaMelo Ball is the top overall selection. Either Ball or Anthony Edwards is assumed to be the top pick, but there are several players that could also climb the latter.
For the Warriors, we already dug into what would happen and who should be atop their big board if they are lucky enough to win the lottery. But, what if they miss out and get the second-overall pick?
In this rundown, we’re also going to assume the Warriors keep the pick although they’ll reportedly consider trading it. That said, let’s take a look at the top five options for the Warriors if they end up with the No. 2 overall selection.
