Warriors will need to make a move to get a pick

The NBA champion Golden State Warriors don’t have a draft pick in today’s draft. But that doesn’t mean they’ll leave the party empty handed.

Their most-likely move: buying a second-round pick from another team. General manager Bob Myers did it last year and was happy with the results, calling Patrick McCaw a “success story” from the strategy.

Making the move more likely is the inevitability the Warriors will be strapped for cash after re-upping Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant this offseason. “It’d be really helpful to have a couple guys on rookie contracts,” head coach Steve Kerr said on Monday.
