Taking inventory of Dubs' draft pick situation after lottery originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Now that the dust has settled and we know exactly what picks the Warriors possess in the 2021 NBA Draft, it's a good time to take inventory of the franchise's draft situation.


-No. 7 overall pick (via the Minnesota Timberwolves)

-No. 14 overall pick

*The Warriors traded their own second-round pick (No. 47 overall) when they acquired the No. 39 pick in the 2019 draft and took Alen Smailagic.

*In the Kelly Oubre deal, the Warriors traded two second-round picks to the Oklahoma City Thunder -- No. 36 overall (via Minnesota) and No. 55 overall (via the Denver Nuggets).


-Own first-round pick

-Own second-round pick

-The Toronto Raptors' second-rounder if it lands in the 31-54 range. If it's in the 55-60 range (highly unlikely), then it goes to the Charlotte Hornets (from the Brad Wanamaker trade).


-Own first-round pick

*The Warriors traded their own second-rounder in the aforementioned Smailagic transaction.

-No picks

*When the Warriors executed the sign-and-trade to get D'Angelo Russell, they traded Andre Iguodala and their 2024 top-four protected first-rounder to the Memphis Grizzlies. Obviously, the Warriors hope to be very good in 2023-24 so they send the Grizzlies a pick in the mid 20s. But if the pick does not convey that year, then it becomes top-one protected in 2025. It would be unprotected in 2026.

*On the morning of the 2019 draft, the Warriors traded their own second-rounder and cash to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for the No. 41 pick in 2019, which became Eric Paschall.


-Own first-round pick (assuming their 2024 first-rounder conveys to the Grizzlies)

*In the aforementioned D-Lo transaction, the Warriors technically traded Kevin Durant and their 2020 top-20 protected first-rounder to the Brooklyn Nets. But the Dubs finished with the worst record in the NBA and they ended up with the No. 2 overall pick (James Wiseman). As a result, Golden State now owes their 2025 second-rounder to the Nets.


-Own first-round pick (assuming their 2024 or 2025 first-rounder already has conveyed to the Grizzlies)

*The Warriors owe the Hawks their own second-rounder, which they sent to Atlanta along with Damian Jones in exchange for Omari Spellman.


One important caveat to remember is that CBA rules prohibit the Warriors from trading any of their first-round picks from 2023 through 2026 because of the uncertain nature of that 2024 pick owed to Memphis.

This could change, however, if the Warriors amend the protections on that asset.
