With the NBA draft two weeks away, the Golden State Warriors are beginning to ramp up preparations with several projected first-round prospects visiting the team this week.
Of course, the Warriors currently have the seventh and 14th selections in the NBA draft. While they are rumored to look to trade one or both of those picks, the team is doing its due diligence on those players projected to be in their range on draft night.
To this point, the Warriors have only hosted players projected to be second-round picks or those not expected to be selected. Warriors guard Stephen Curry recently said none of the top prospects had been into the Bay yet, but that is beginning to change.
On Wednesday, Florida guard Tre Mann and LSU forward Cameron Thomas were among the prospects to work out with the Warriors. Nah’Shon “Bones” Hyland from VCU and Houston guard Quentin Grimes were also part of that workout, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic.
Following that workout, the Warriors will be bringing in projected lottery picks Moses Moody (Arkansas), Davion Mitchell (Baylor), Jalen Johnson (Duke) and Kai Jones (Texas) on Thursday, according to Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Of the group visiting on Thursday, Moody and Mitchell have been heavily linked to the Warriors. They each project to be able to step in and play immediately and both would bring needed skillsets to the roster, such as shooting and defense.
Golden State projects to be one of the more interesting teams to watch on draft night. With the organization looking to add veteran help, they seem poised to make at least one trade and shake up the draft.
