OAKLAND, CALIF. (AP) - The Golden State Warriors have made some splashy moves already this offseason. Just don’t expect another one on draft night.
Warriors general manager Larry Riley believes the team will keep the 11th pick in Thursday night’s draft. He also quieted the growing trade talk surrounding leading scorer Monta Ellis _ at least for this week.
Riley says multiple teams have inquired about Ellis but it’s “very likely” that the guard “will not be traded on draft night or even through the summer.” That means Golden State will have to find other ways to improve until free agency begins.
The Warriors‘ biggest need in the draft is to bolster an undersized frontcourt. That’s not an easy task in what is widely considered a weak draft.
