Report: Warriors like Wiseman more than Edwards in draft

Warriors

The 2020 NBA Draft, which originally was scheduled for June 25, now is less than one month away.

The reality is that nobody has any clue what the Minnesota Timberwolves and Golden State Warriors will do with the No. 1 and No. 2 overall picks respectively.

But it's "mock draft season," and the analysts have a job to do.

Bleacher Report's Jonathan Wasserman published an updated version Wednesday, and he has the T-Wolves taking LaMelo Ball and the Warriors selecting James Wiseman.

"Odds are, the Warriors stay put despite all the trade chatter, and we're hearing there is more support for James Wiseman than Anthony Edwards in Golden State's front office," Wasserman wrote. "Deni Avdija, Obi Toppin and Tyrese Haliburton figure to remain in play, but it's presumed they're more trade-down targets."

For what it's worth, we also have seen stories claiming that Golden State likely will not draft a center with the No. 2 pick.

And the San Francisco Chronicle's Connor Letourneau in May reported that the Warriors are higher on Onyeka Okongwu than Wiseman. Perhaps that has changed.

Who knows.

Fortunately for president of basketball operations Bob Myers and the rest of the front office, they are allowed to conduct in-person workouts/interviews with draft prospects. This should allow team brass to gather valuable information and intel that could end up pushing the Warriors in a certain direction.

Take a deep breath Dub Nation, Nov. 18 will be here sooner than you realize.
