NBA Draft Lottery: What Should the Warriors Do at Each Potential Draft Spot?

If the picture isn't clear, those are lottery balls.

If the picture still isn't clear, that's because it's impossible to know where any team will end up in the NBA Draft Lottery this evening at 5 p.m. pacific time.

If the picture still remains unclear, that's because the Golden State Warriors' first-round draft pick will go to Utah, unless they finish in one of the top seven lottery spots tonight.

Let's try to bring some clarity to this.

First of all, barring a trade, the Warriors will have at least one first-round pick. Secondly, the Warriors' first overall pick will either be the first, second, third, seventh or 30th pick of the draft.

More uncertainties remain, of course. Even after the lottery is set, who do the Warriors target? Who will fall to them, who will be snatched away from them?

The picture will remain unclear until June 28, when the draft concludes, and even then it will remain unclear for a number of years if the Warriors' decision was the right one.

That being said, here's a look at what the most logical options are for Golden State at each potential draft spot.
