Who could the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings land in the 2020 NBA Draft? Check out this mock to see how the Bay Area could be affected.
The 2020 NBA draft will represent a rare occurrence in the basketball world. For the first time since 2012 the two NorCal franchises, the Golden State Warriors and the Sacramento Kings, are both projected to pick in the lottery.
The 2012 draft saw the Kings add center Thomas Robinson with their fifth overall pick. The Warriors, on the other hand, used the seventh pick to select wingman Harrison Barnes (who now resides in Sacramento).
While Robinson was largely considered to be a bust, Barnes was a key cog in the Warriors 2015 championship roster.
With both teams poised to add pieces that could potentially change the outlook of their franchise, now is the perfect time to consider how the first-round lottery might shake out. And more importantly, which players fit best of the Warriors and Kings rosters.

Wiseman has long been considered one of the top overall prospects in the draft. While recent tension at the University of Memphis has caused the big-man to end his college eligibility to prepare for the draft, he remains the top candidate to be selected first overall.
Wiseman’s unique combination of size and potential is unmatched in this draft. He has the body to make an immediate impact at the NBA level and could achieve stardom has he develops his aggressiveness and outside shooting ability.
