This Knicks-Warriors trade features No. 2 pick in 2020 NBA Draft

There has been plenty of speculation surrounding the top spots of the 2020 NBA Draft, and whether the Minnesota Timberwolves or Golden State Warriors will trade out of their slots. Could the New York Knicks enter the conversation centered around a trade for the No. 2 pick?

The Warriors, in particular, should be a team to watch. Golden State expects to return to contention next season, and a swift move packaging the No. 2 pick could expedite the process. 

A decade ago, the Warriors would have reveled in having the No. 2 pick for the chance to select a transformational talent. Now, though, it can be seen more as a means to an end. 

Golden State might make the pick, but it wouldn’t surprise fans if they swing a trade. One team that would make sense both from a match up standpoint and the ability to fill a need for the Warriors, is the New York Knicks. 

New York would presumably be enthralled if they could jump from No. 8 to No. 2, to select either LaMelo Ball or Anthony Edwards. When New York is pegged at No. 2 via trade in mock drafts, its usually for Ball. 

Let’s take a look at a hypothetical trade that would see the New York Knicks move up to No. 2 in the 2020 NBA Draft as the Golden State Warriors find their trade partner.
