It’s officially time for the exciting 2022 NBA Draft. Drafts are always a good time. If you’re new to the fun, click here to learn how to view the design.
After having three lottery picks (earning them James Wiseman, Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody) in the last two years, the Golden State Warriors are well out of the lottery again. They have number 28, which Jordan Poole earned them a few years ago. On the less positive side, it also brought them Jacob Evans III, Les Jepsen and Danny Salisbury.
The Warriors should have plenty of exciting options at number 28, possibly including Blake Wesley, our pick in SB Nation’s mock draft.
But there were plenty of rumors that the Warriors could swap the pick. With Wiseman, Kuminga and Moody still on the list, the dubs probably aren’t particularly keen on adding more raw youngsters. And while picks don’t pay well at the end of the first round compared to lottery picks, the deal for novices is still above that of the veteran minimum… and given the Warriors’ current salary cap, every dollar they can save goes a long way .
So will the Warriors trade the #28 picks? According to the latest SB Nation Reacts poll, the majority of dubs fans think they should.
Now we’ll wait and see if they do…
