In Thursday’s draft, Golden State could potentially trade its first-round pick.
On Thursday, the Warriors are attempting to trade the 28th overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.
Patrick Baldwin Jr. of Milwaukee is the forward who Golden State could select, according to current projections.
However, given the Warriors’ “hefty payroll” and the need to add James Wiseman, Jonathan Kuminga, and Moses Moody to the rotation for next season, Jeremy Woo of Sports Illustrated claims that moving the choice makes sense.
The Warriors won the NBA title this year, which was followed by an amazing championship parade, five days ago. Golden State’s ability to win another championship will depend on how the team manages and utilizes its three young players, Wiseman, Kuminga, and Moody, if Steph Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson serve as the team’s nucleus.
