The Golden State Warriors are counting down the hours until the 2021 NBA Draft, one in which they have two of the top 14 picks.
But, the better question is: Are they actually planning to use the picks? As of now, it appears the market isn’t there for them to trade the picks. However, as the draft nears, that could certainly change.
With the NBA Draft just hours away, the Stephen Curry-led Golden State Warriors should consider these three draft-day trades.
All throughout the NBA, teams are looking to improve on their current situation. From teams like the Thunder and Sixers, who have All-Star waiting to be dealt, to the Warriors, who are looking for that All-Star player, teams are likely going to be highly active as the draft nears.
The Warriors have a window that’s continuing to get closer to closing. However, that championship window will has a few more years, and the Warriors should want to do what they can to capitalize on the late primes of their Big 3.
That said, with two lottery picks and former No. 2 overall pick James Wiseman in their arsenal, the assets are there, and the Warriors should, at the very least, look into making any of these three trades.
