Despite draft week being officially underway, it’s still unclear what the Golden State Warriors will do in the 2021 draft.

Trade one pick for a veteran? Move No. 7 and No. 14 for a potential star? Land a proven prospect? Take a flier on a player that needs development? All questions that could be answered when the Warriors go on the clock on Thursday night.

With trade chatter buzzing in the background, players like UConn wing James Bouknight, Baylor guard Davion Mitchell and Arkansas guard Moses Moody have been often linked to Golden State in mock drafts, but there’s still the chance for a surprise on draft night.

While Bob Myers and Steve Kerr continue to map out the game plan for Thursday night’s draft, Warriors Wire is looking at different predictions for Golden State’s picks at No. 7 and No. 14. The mock draft roundup looks at 10 different predictions from mock drafts from published July 7-27.
