The Warriors on Thursday afternoon announced that Steph Curry will represent the franchise at next week's NBA draft lottery.
It turns out that Golden State's superstar guard will not be alone on the "virtual" dais.

But one thing is clear: The expectations for the dog are very high.
"He has a job to do. He better do good or he's back on the streets, you know? (laughter)" Warriors owner Joe Lacob said jokingly to ABC7 News' Larry Beil and Casey Pratt on the "With Authority" podcast. "I'm kidding. He's here for good.
"He does have some responsibility here (though)."
Lucky Larry (his full name is Larry O'Brien) was among the 150 dogs and cats displaced from Miami shelters when Hurricane Irma hit. He was adopted by the Lacobs after they helped fly the pets to the Bay Area in 2017.— Casey Pratt (@CaseyPrattABC7) August 13, 2020
The Warriors are guaranteed a top-five pick, but they could end up trading the selection. Here is the breakdown of their odds:
-No. 1 pick: 14 percent
-No. 2 pick: 13.4 percent
-No. 3 pick: 12.7 percent
-No. 4 pick: 12 percent
-No. 5 pick: 47.9 percent
The last time Golden State had the No. 1 choice was 1995, when they took Joe Smith.
The 2020 NBA Draft is scheduled to take place Oct. 16.
