With short window after season's end, Warriors turn to draft

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Late last week, Bob Myers could barely even wrap his mind around the idea he needed to start thinking about the NBA draft. The Golden State general manager just tried to cope, somehow, with the shock and sadness of losing two star players to serious injuries in the last two games of the Finals and losing to the Toronto Raptors.

Myers will go into Thursday night's draft with the hope of acquiring an immediate impact player - something that used to be a luxury on his loaded roster but now could be much more of a necessity if the Warriors want to contend for a championship again. Myers must build the roster for next season knowing Klay Thompson is likely to miss much of it and if Kevin Durant re-signs with the Warriors he too will be sidelined for about a year.

That's daunting consider given the Warriors had a starting lineup of five All-Stars at one point as they chased a third straight title only to lose Durant in Game 5 to a ruptured right Achilles tendon that required surgery last Wednesday, then Thompson the very next day in Game 6 to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. He is yet to undergo reconstructive surgery, which often doesn't happen for a week or so once swelling in the knee subsides. Myers had no medical updates when he discussed the draft Wednesday.
