NBA Trades will keep the Golden State Warriors active this offseason. Golden State just won the 2017 NBA Finals but it is already looking towards the future. The Warriors are reportedly aiming to complete deals that will land them picks in this year's draft. 

Zach Lowe of ESPN reported Golden State's desire to acquire draft picks. According to Lowe, some league sources said the Warriors are "trying to buy back into this draft."

In a list provided by RealGM, it shows that Golden State owns zero picks in the first two rounds of the 2017 NBA Draft. The Warriors' first-rounder (30th pick) this year was sent to the Utah Jazz because of the trade that got them 2015 NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala.

Golden State's second-rounder (60th pick) was also shipped to Utah as a part of that deal. However, the Philadelphia 76ers got it from the Jazz before it ended up with the Atlanta Hawks. 

It is uncertain who are what the Warriors are willing to give up to add a few picks ahead of the 2017 NBA Draft. A player leaving is highly unlikely at this point, especially since they are coming off their second successful championship pursuit in three seasons. 

If that is the case, then the only valuable asset Golden State has is a protected 2019 second round pick that came from the Dallas Mavericks. Unfortunately, the future selection may be insufficient for the Warriors to succeed in their goal. 

It can be expected that this dilemma is going to be addressed by Golden State in the days to come. As of this moment, the Warriors are busy celebrating after the franchise won its fifth NBA championship. They are now tied with the San Antonio Spurs who also have five titles.
