The Warriors already are making draft-day moves.
In need of wing depth and shooting, the Warriors made a move to acquire the No. 41 overall pick in Thursday night's NBA draft from the Atlanta Hawks.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was first to report the trade.
With the futures of Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson both up in the air, the Warriors need to find a way to fill the roster with cheap talent.
After losing Kevin Durant (at least for the season if not forever) and Klay Thompson (likely until at least March), the five-time defending Western Conference champions will need to add some scoring around Steph Curry, who will have to carry a much heavier load next season.
NBA draft day is just getting started.
