Golden State Warriors' general manager Bob Myers and company breathed a huge sigh of relief at the 2012 NBA Draft Lottery two weeks ago after the ping-pong balls rolled their way, allowing the Warriors to keep their lottery pick in the upcoming draft.
The Warriors will have four total picks in the 2012 NBA Draft: two first round picks (seventh and 30th), and two second round picks (35th and 52nd).
However, Myers hinted at the possibility that the Warriors would not keep all four picks:
"Having four picks is a tremendous situation to be in, and I think we can do some good things with it," he said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. "We're excited. We have a tremendous amount of assets, which puts us in good shape to explore a variety of opportunities. It's up to us to make something of it."
The Chronicle also broke down the four possible routes that the Warriors' could take with the No. 7 pick: Trade the pick, move down in the draft, move up in the draft or stay put.
Out of all these options, moving up in the draft via a trade is the best direction to go.
