The Warriors front office fee stayed away from its Dremond Green second-round election until 2012, gaining credit for its scouting prowess and decision-making.
But shortly after that selection, the Golden State whipped up a supposed diamond in the rough. His greatest dynasty downplayed the importance of the draft, and the struggles of Damien Jones, Jacob Evans, Patrick McCo and others flew under the radar.
Injuries to Stephen Curry and Clay Thompson last year, and a record of mostly 15-50 without him on the floor, made it clear that the Warriors must now strengthen their future to avoid a later painful re-build. Beating Eric Paschal in the second round of the 2019 NBA Draft was a great start. But what happens on Wednesday in the 2020 NBA draft, when the Warriors have the No. 2 overall pick, will be the biggest determinant of what comes next for the franchise.
