Taking a look at the Golden State Warriors' place in the 2024 NBA Draft

Many are curious to know about the Golden State Warriors' plans for the upcoming NBA Draft. Teams are geared toward which prospect they'd want to pick on June 26-27. For other teams, the draft will serve as a way for them to develop young talent and build their future.

The Warriors have had their luck in the draft over the years. They selected Steph Curry with their seventh pick in 2009 and that worked out well for both parties. Curry went on to become one of the greatest stars of his generation and revolutionized the three-point game.

They also drafted Klay Thompson in the first round with the 11th pick. He's had a solid career as Curry's running mate and helped the Warriors with three titles. In the second round, they've had some steals over the years. Their biggest steal in recent memory is Draymond Green, who was picked 35th overall by Golden State.

For the 2024 NBA Draft, they look to replicate what they did with Green. The Warriors don't have a first-round pick this year. They only have one pick for the rest of the event, and that is the 52nd pick, which will be in the second round.

This year's draft for the Warriors is unlike last year. The franchise had two picks last season, one in the first round and one in the second round. Their first-round pick was Brandin Podziemski with their 19th pick. Podziemski had a solid season, averaging 9.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.7 assists. He wrapped up his rookie year and was part of the All-Rookie First Team.

Their second-round pick last year was Trayce Jackson-Davis, who had a solid first year in the league. Jackson-Davis averaged 7.9 points, five rebounds and 1.2 assists.

Golden State Warriors looking to work out a promising forward

The Golden State Warriors have shown interest in working out DJ Rodman, son of NBA legend, Dennis Rodman. The younger Rodman is 6-foot-5 and played four seasons at Washington State. Unlike his father, DJ has the confidence to make shots from beyond the arc, which could be useful for him if he plays with the Warriors.

Dalton Johnson shared his breakdown of the young forward on social media.

"DJ Rodman, Dennis Rodman's son, is part of the Warriors' pre-draft workout tomorrow," Johnson posted on social media. "Rodman, a 6-foot-5 forward, played four seasons at Washington State and a fifth at USC. He averaged 9.0 points and 5.4 rebounds his final two years, shooting 37.2% from 3."

Rodman has gone under the radar as most teams have focused on where Bronny James would land. The Warriors could use their 52nd pick to draft the young forward on draft night.
