The Warriors have acquired a first-round pick and two second-rounders for the upcoming draft, but they may be without either of their own selections. Golden State's first-rounder is ticketed for Utah unless it falls in the top seven.
The Warriors currently have the league's ninth-worst record, though there's still plenty of time for the standings to fluctuate. Still, Golden State doesn't want to have to rely on a losing streak to retain its lottery pick. According to co-owner Joe Lacob, the team has been in discussions with the Jazz to keep its first-rounder. While the trade deadline has passed and no moves can be made until after the season, Marcus Thompson II of the Bay Area News Group hears that GM Larry Riley has been "working for months" to secure the Warriors a lottery pick.
A source tells Thompson that Golden State wouldn't want to move any of its core players to re-acquire its lottery pick, preferring to use its three 2012 picks to facilitate a trade. Considering the highest of those picks, San Antonio's first-rounder, will likely fall no in the mid-to-late-20s, I can't imagine the Jazz being enthusiastic about such a deal. But we'll see what comes of the talks.
In addition to the Spurs' first-rounder, the Warriors have also added second-round picks from the Nets and Hawks.
