While the Warriors are watching the NBA's restart from home, an important date looms for Golden State. General manager Bob Myers and the rest of the front office finally will know where they will pick in the 2020 NBA Draft when the lottery takes place on Aug. 25.
Once the Warriors' place in the draft is set, they can really start working on scenarios of where certain players might fall, or who they would take with the No. 1 overall pick. The question is, do they hone in on another guard or look to add a big man?
In our own latest mock draft by James Ham, he gave the Warriors Georgia shooting guard Anthony Edwards with the top pick in the draft. He wasn't alone there, too. CBS Sports' Colin Ward-Henninger and NBADraft.net both sent Edwards to Golden State with the top pick as well.
"Edwards isn’t the only player with All-Star potential in the top 10, but he is probably the safest bet to walk into the league and find a niche," Ham wrote.

As a freshman, Edwards averaged 19.1 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. He just turned 19 years old on Wednesday, and at 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds, he already is built like a pro.
"At best, you're looking at a future All-NBA player who should thrive in the NBA style at the coveted wing position," Ward-Henninger wrote on Edwards. "Getting into a strong culture like Golden State's should help remedy any effort issues on both ends of the court."
Edwards likely would come off the bench for the Warriors and be a scoring threat for the second unit. If coach Steve Kerr wants to use Draymond Green more as a small-ball center, Edwards could come in as a third guard and join Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins and Green. There certainly are concerns with Edwards, too.
In his only college season, Edwards was ball-dominant and not very efficient. He averaged just 2.8 assists and made only 29.4 percent of his 3-point attempts. The truth is, he also had to have the ball in his hands all the time and throw up some ugly shots for a Georgia team that lacked talent. Going big might be a better option for the Warriors.
"Golden State could go plenty of different directions if they are lucky enough to land the top spot," Ham wrote. "Obi Toppin might be a better fit. They need a big like James Wiseman."
Bleacher Report's Jonathan Wasserman opted to go with Toppin to the Warriors with the No. 4 overall pick.
"Obi Toppin would immediately give Golden State's guards an elite finisher," Wasserman wrote.
The Dayton forward gives fans highlight-reel dunks and also can shoot from distance. Toppin, 22, averaged 20.0 points and grabbed 7.5 rebounds per game this season as a sophomore. Listed at 6-foot-9 and 220 pounds, Toppin would give Kerr a frontcourt option as a NBA-ready scorer. But Toppin isn't known for his defense, and the Warriors again wouldn't be the tallest group with him and Green.
Golden State also could look at big men like Wiseman and Onyeka Okongwu. Wiseman is more of a traditional center, while Okongwu is center/forward hybrid but can't stretch the floor like Toppin.
The Warriors will have options. More than anything, it all depends on where the ping pong balls fall.
