We don't know when the 2020 NBA Draft will take place.

We do know that the Warriors will have a very high pick, plus two more selections in the second round.

Golden State owner Joe Lacob was a guest on "The TK Show" podcast with Tim Kawakami of The Athletic, and talked about the importance of the draft.

"We've never spent more time -- as a group -- on the draft as we have this year," Lacob said. "Obviously, we have a lot more time to do it. I have watched video probably of all the top players. I've watched interviews, I've watched high school highlights, AAU highlights.

"We had a Zoom call the other day where I think we had 17 people on that call talking about the draft and how we're approaching it and what the next steps are. We've got no excuse in terms of not having enough time.

"Of course the bad part about all of this is we're not able to interview or get people to come in for workouts or watch the NCAA Tournament. It's gonna be interesting. I think there's enough information out there -- and enough work being put in on our side -- that we'll be able to make a good decision."

There are many variables in play when it comes to making said decision.

"We're gonna look at all scenarios," Lacob explained. "Honestly. I'm not gonna hide this -- we're gonna look at drafting someone at our position. Maybe we trade down -- that's a possiblity. I'm not saying it's preferred or not preferred. I'm just saying it's something we have to look at it. 

"We're gonna look at all options."

The reality is that the Warriors won't be able to narrow things down until the NBA Draft Lottery is held and they know their position.

If the lottery is unkind and they fall to No. 5 or even lower, one would assume that eliminates the possibility of trading down.

Again, we will know more once those ping-pong balls are put to work.
