Projected contracts for Warriors No. 7, 14 NBA draft picks


It's official: the Golden State Warriors are the proud owners of not one, but two first-round picks.

With the 2021-22 salary cap set to increase to $112 million next season, that would only make a small dent in the Warriors' financial situation.
