The Golden State Warriors have turned their attention to the off-season having the worst record in the NBA, before the season halt due to the current public health crisis. With no hope of getting in the post-season, Golden State is highly unlikely to resume play, if the season returns.
The last year’s NBA finalists are expected to choose a player from the “upper echelon” of the 2020 NBA draft. According to the San Fransisco Chronicle beat writer Connor Letourneau, the Warriors got Tyrese Haliburton, Issac Okoro and Israeli forward Deni Avdija high on their draft board, should they not land the No.1 pick of the 2020 NBA Draft.
Haliburton, an NBA-ready guard, played in Iowa State for two seasons, before declaring for the draft. At the same time, Issac Okoro has the reputation of a versatile defensive wing. Finally, Deni Avdija, Maccabi Tel Aviv’s versatile forward, is known as a capable ball-handler and underrated finisher, especially in the open court.
We recall that Tyrese Haliburton, Issac Okoro and Deni Avdija are also targets of the New York Knicks.
