The Golden State Warriors have options once the 2020 NBA Draft comes around. They can keep their spot and pick one of the top three players available – Anthony Edwards, LaMelo Ball or James Wiseman. That is unless a tempting offer comes their way, one that would be better than the young talented individual they take in next month.

It is no secret that the Warriors remain formidable. Stephen Curry and Draymond Green remain vital cogs for Steve Kerr, together with Klay Thompson. Of the three, Thompson may need time to recall his old form.

Aside from the original big three of the Dubs, there is also Andrew Wiggins. The former top pick showed he could jive with the Warriors, meaning Kerr could be missing only one more thing that most know – a big man to complement them. And there is no logical target other than the 7-foot-1 Wiseman.

Based on the latest reports from The Athletic, it appears this is what the Dubs plan to do at the 2020 NBA Draft. Golden State is reportedly eager to make a selection and the wise money is on the Memphis product.

"Team sources continue to indicate an expectation and even an eagerness to use the second pick and infuse the roster with a young talent that title contenders so rarely get a chance to draft. But the right offer in the next three weeks could certainly pivot them in another direction," Anthony Slater wrote in that report.

If not Wiseman, Edwards or Ball could also be a tempting selection for the Warriors. With no official word on whether Thompson will already play, one of the two could fill in. Also, it would be an investment into the future, NBC Sports reported.

Most know that Curry, Thompson and Green are getting older though immediately looking for replacements is not necessary. But having guys who can one day replace them would be a tactical ploy. This is assuming the Dubs can keep them in the fray for the coming years.

But as mentioned in a previous post, there is always the option of trading down. They could get other assets and go for Deni Avdija, someone who has made a good impression during a workout in Atlanta.

The Dubs have options. The only question now is which one they will take. They have roughly a month to figure that out.
