Even though the NBA restart now is underway in Orlando, the Warriors are in full offseason mode.

With a guaranteed top-five NBA draft pick, plenty of intrigue revolves around what general manager Bob Myers and the Warriors front office plan to do with such a valuable asset. Although plenty of potential trade ideas have been thrown out there, Myers told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski that Golden State isn't having any active trade discussions at the moment.

"To be truthful, we're not discussing trades with teams right now," Myers said on "The Woj Pod." "I don't even know if we're allowed, but we're not. I perceive September for you to be busy reporting on whatever nuggets you have as far as potential trades.

"At this point, it's almost not worth hypothesizing internally, we still just need to operate as who's the best fit for us. Every team is always looking at their economics, will they change, maybe, but right now we're not worried about that kind of information because we just don't have it."

The Warriors are eyeing a return to NBA title contention in 2020-21, after a dismal 15-50 season while stars Steph Curry and Klay Thompson recovered from major injuries.

Once the draft lottery concludes and teams know exactly where each team lands, the rumor mill likely will begin heating up. Golden State, in addition to the potential top-5 pick, owns a $17.2 million trade exception courtesy of the Andre Iguodala swap with the Memphis Grizzlies.

The scenarios are endless, and Myers' phone line likely will be blowing up as we get closer to draft day on Oct. 16.
