The Golden State Warriors have reportedly made a move to add depth to the 2019-2020 roster.
ESPN’s NBA insider, Adrian Wojnarowski, says the Warriors have added a third pick in the 2019 NBA Draft — pick number 41 overall — through a trade with the Atlanta Hawks.
ESPN Sources: Golden State has acquired Atlanta’s No. 41 pick in tonight’s NBA Draft. The cost: $1.3M and a 2024 second-round pick. Atlanta moved No. 44 to Miami yesterday. Hawks have Nos. 8, 10, 17 and 35 tonight. Golden State has Nos. 28, 41 and 58.

The addition of a second round slot gives Golden State a late first-round pick (28 overall) as well as two second-rounders (41, 58 overall). In 2017 the Warriors used cash alone to pry a second-round selection from the Chicago Bulls, in the form of Jordan Bell.
The move could provide added depth to a Warriors team that finished the NBA Finals depleted after injuries to key players including Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Kevon Looney.
The Chronicle’s Connor Letourneau has a breakdown of the players the Warriors might be targeting on Thursday night. The 2019 NBA Draft is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. PDT.
