Warriors general manager and president of basketball operations Bob Myers (Bob Myers) said on Wednesday that Golden State University has not yet discussed with other teams about trading the second pick in the 2020 draft.
Miles described the league’s interest in the selection of the Warriors as “ups and downs,” and intense conversations closer to the draft are more likely to occur than it is now.
Miles told reporters on the teleconference: “I think specific things will come next week.” “What will you do? “I don’t know, what do you want, or what will you give us?” But we are not so determined yet,’We will give you X, Y, Z.

The Warriors have such a high draft pick and are in a good position, especially in a year lacking clear top prospects. According to reports, many front offices wanted point guard LaMelo Ball to rank first overall, but did not reach a consensus with Zion Williamson last year. Georgia State guard Anthony Edwards and Memphis big man James Wiseman will be the choice of the Minnesota Timberwolves, or which team will eventually be selected.
Myers said Wednesday that the Warriors are still finalizing the draft. If the Golden State Warriors ultimately do not value Ball, Edwards, Wiseman or any player who is still ranked second, then the Warriors have many options to select a high-quality player and gain more assets.
The key word in this sentence is “possible”. Miles said he still can’t measure how many potential suitors the Warriors might have, or even what kind of offers they might receive.
Myers said: “If the team makes a definite offer now-we can’t trade picks right now, but whenever this window is allegedly opened, you will rarely see what happened that day.” “What happened is usually The draft happened early night, but the team can start talking about something and have different ideas, but what I want to say is that I can’t really answer this question until the problem becomes more serious.”

According to reports, the NBA’s trade ban will be lifted a few days before the draft on November 18, and Miles revealed that the Warriors have already discussed one thing or another with “most teams in the league”. Miles said that if any trades are to be completed on draft night, he expects the discussion to begin by next Monday at the latest.
Based on his previous experience, Myers believes that conversations may start to increase over the weekend. However, even Myers’ nearly ten years in the Warriors’ front office can only prepare him enough for future discussions.
Miles said: “We will depend on the development of the situation. Each situation is unique. I don’t know if people are calling other people or if we will receive the most in the next four or five days. Phone. It’s hard to predict.”
