Warriors’ 2024 first round pick goes to Blazers

Warriors’ 2024 first round pick goes to Blazers

Despite holding a seat at the NBA draft lottery, the Golden State Warriors’ chances of keeping their 2024 first-round selection were slim.

With their 2024 first-round pick being only top-four protected, the Warriors’ pick was likely headed to the Portland Trail Blazers as part of a 2019 trade with the Memphis Grizzlies that included Andre Iguodala.

The Warriors had a less than 1% chance of landing in the top four and a 0.7% chance of becoming the first pick. Heading into Sunday, the Warriors had a 96.6% chance of ending up with the No. 14 selection in the first round of the 2024 draft.

Once the lottery was underway in Chicago on Sunday, the Warriors quickly landed that No. 14 selection. After their pick was revealed, the pick was conveyed to the Portland Trail Blazers, meaning the Warriors will not have a selection in the first round of the 2024 NBA draft.

While the Warriors had an unlikely chance of landing the top overall pick in the lottery, so did the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks had the 10th-best odds to get the No. 1 pick: 3%. Despite their slim odds, the Hawks won the lottery for the first time in franchise history and gained the No. 1 pick in the 2024 NBA draft.

Following the Hawks, the Washington Wizards, Houston Rockets, San Antonio Spurs and Detroit Pistons round out the top five in the draft.

The first round of the NBA draft is Friday, June 26 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The second round of the draft will take place on Saturday, June 27.
