NBA Draft order -- six Bay Area picks

The 2012 NBA Draft order is set following the NBA draft lottery held Wednesday evening in New York.

The New Orleans Hornets leapfrogged from their No. 4 pre-lottery slot to nab the top pick, bumping the Charlotte Bobcats down to second.

Both the Kings and the Warriors retained their pre-lottery slots. Sacramento will have the fifth overall pick, Golden State will pick seventh.

For the Warriors, not moving down from the seventh slot is a big deal. Had they been bumped to eighth or lower, their pick would have gone to Utah as part of the conditions of a 2011 trade for Marcus Williams.

Golden State will have three other picks in the draft on June 28. They own San Antonio's first-round pick (30th overall), acquired in the deal that sent Stephen Jackson to the Spurs in March. The Warriors also acquired the 35th overall pick (fifth in the second round) from the Brooklyn Nets in the Brandan Wright trade in February; as well as the 52nd overall pick, which they bought from Atlanta in March.

The Warriors' own second-round pick (38th overall) was traded to New York as part of the deal for David Lee. It now belongs to Denver.

Sacramento's draft status isn't quite so complicated. The Kings have two picks: their first-rounder (5th overall), and their natural second round pick (36th overall).

Report: Warriors GM Bob Myers was Lakers' No. 1 target

Report: Warriors GM Bob Myers was Lakers' No. 1 target

On Tuesday morning, the Lakers made sweeping changes to their front office.

Magic Johnson is now the president of basketball operations and both general manager Mitch Kupchak and executive VP of basketball operations Jim Buss were fired.

Los Angeles -- looking to hire a new GM -- originally targeted Warriors GM Bob Myers, according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.

But as Wojnarowski reports: "After Myers signed a recent contract extension, it became clear to Lakers brass that it would be unable to lure Myers."

In September, the Warriors promoted Myers from general manager to president of basketball operations/general manager.

Myers was named the NBA Executive of the Year following the 2014-15 season.

The Warriors recalled guard Brianté Weber from the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA Development League, the team announced today.

Weber was assigned to Santa Cruz to allow him to participate in the 2017 NBA D-League All-Star Game on Saturday in New Orleans, where he tallied four points, two assists and two steals in 16 minutes for the West squad.

Weber, who signed his second 10-day contract with the Warriors on Feb. 14, has appeared in five games with Golden State this season, averaging 1.6 points and 1.0 assist in 8.2 minutes.

Prior to joining Golden State, the 6’2”, 165-pound guard appeared in 31 games (all starts) this season with the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA D-League, averaging 16.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 7.4 assists and 3.26 steals in 36.8 minutes and garnering NBA D-League Player of the Month honors in January.
