Deni Avdija believes the Golden State Warriors are the best option for him in the 2020 NBA Draft, according to Ethan Strauss of The Athletic.

Strauss also reports that several teams, including the Detroit Pistons, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Atlanta Hawks have shown interest to pick Avdija.

“So far, Avdija’s rumored preference is for the Warriors, and he’s undoubtedly not alone in that predilection. I don’t believe I’m hewing to hometown bias when I make the observation that the Warriors are unusually appealing among high draft pick teams, maybe historically so.

While it might have little bearing on how they actually perform next season, the Warriors are still perceived as a glamor franchise, blessed with championship pieces.

That’s more appealing than the standard prospect path of toiling in obscurity until your team gets good enough,” Strauss writes.

The 2020 NBA Draft will take place on November 18 and the Warriors have the No.2 pick.
