    With the loss of Kevin Durant to the Brooklyn Nets coupled with injuries to Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, the Golden State Warriors are 4-19 and will almost certainly have a high draft pick in 2020. This could allow the Warriors to reload on the fly and start a new trend of "a gap year."

    "The people I talk to around the league are really worried they are going to trade that first-round pick, the 2020 pick, because if they load up with an All-Star-type player with that pick, they are terrified," Tom Haberstroh said during the Warriors-Hornets telecast on Wednesday. "Or if they land a Luka Doncic in the draft, they're terrified. So that 2020 pick, adding to the group they have established here with [Eric] Paschall stepping in right away, man, I think every team is going to try to do a gap year."

    The Warriors will also have a taxpayer exception worth around $17 million and a taxpayer mid-level exception.

    They won’t trade that pick. Warriors will do everything to get Wiseman or Edwards and then it’s a wrap for the next five years

    Injuries? It's a gap year when they didn't intend on being this awful. I associate tanking with a team making moves in the offseason and during the season to deliberately suck.

    They'll flip Russell for pieces and do the best they can with the core 3, outside of that they're done. They'd need Wiseman if they plan to do any of that and even if they got him who's coming in return? So I'm guessing this is where the media starts the Giannis trade demands, except those things only work if the team can sign the player in free agency.

    And if these same exes can conspire together to block the Lakers from getting PG, Kawhi, and tried their hardest with AD after almost a decade of down time, why would they allow GS to come back from the dead after only 1 year?
