OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The only way the Golden State Warriors will generate any news during Thursday night's NBA draft is if they make a trade or spend some money.

Ultimately, the cost for either will determine what they decide.

With no pick in hand due to prior trades, Warriors general manager Bob Myers and his staff still prepared as if they have selections to make -- just in case an opportunity arises. After all, they often do on draft night.

The Warriors want to get a pick because rookie salaries are inexpensive and the risk-reward factor is far more favorable than a veteran free agent. However, Myers said, "We're not desperate to get one."
