The Golden State Warriors are eyeing guard Jalen Suggs in the 2021 NBA Draft.

The Warriors own the No. 7 and No. 14 picks in the 2021 NBA Draft.

However, Suggs is expected to be selected before the Warriors will have an opportunity to select a player. He averaged 14.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game during the 2020-21 campaign in college.

Most draft analysts anticipate Cade Cunningham to go No. 1 to the Detroit Pistons, Jalen Green to be selected No. 2 by the Houston Rockets and Evan Mobley to picked at No. 3 by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Toronto Raptors, who own the No. 4 pick, are one of the landing spots for Suggs in several mock drafts.

As a result, the Warriors could be in talks with the Raptors. In fact, the Warriors are reportedly interested in Raptors star Pascal Siakam. A trade between the two teams on draft night could end up having lots of moving parts.
