NBA rumors: Warriors interested in three draft prospects at pick No. 28
Report: Krieger, interested in three prospects at pick #28, originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
If the Warriors don't end up trading the #28 pick in the NBA draft, a report claims they'd be interested in these three prospects.
The Athletic's Zach Harper reported in his latest Q&A column that Golden State is poised to postpone the election to release guaranteed money. If they end up with the pick, the Warriors are scheduled to vote for Caleb Houston of Michigan, Christian Braun of Kansas and E.J. Liddell.
"The defending champions are apparently open to deferring their 28th draft pick, and that could come with some guaranteed money giving them an even bigger luxury tax bill, although there's not much of a difference between a minimum contract and what that is The 28th pick would command,” writes Harper. "If they decide to keep it, they want the Warriors to be interested in Houston or Christian Braun. EJ Liddell would be the dream scenario but it's hard to imagine him dropping to 28th place."
Warriors general manager Bob Myers told reporters Wednesday that he doesn't think money will play a role in selling the election.
"I don't think money will be a factor in whether we trade or keep the choice," Myers said. "It's going to be when it makes sense, so it's not really going to be a money decision. We've got 15, 20 people up on the ninth floor right now watching movies and getting the draft order and hosting our board."

Houston, a small forward, Braun, a shooting guard, and Liddell, a power forward, each play three different positions, which could indicate the Warriors aren't targeting any specific position and will likely pick the best player available when they do you can find the board at pick #28.
Regardless of who they pick, or if they pick anyone at all, Golden State will still be in a great position with the current core of superstars and the handful of exciting young talent waiting in the wings.
