For the first time in years, the Golden State Warriors are expected to own a top pick in the NBA draft. Instead of focusing on a run to the NBA Finals, the Warriors are locking in on the top prospects available in the upcoming draft class.

Since the start of the season, players like Anthony Edwards, LaMelo Ball and Deni Avdija have headlined mock drafts. However, with the college basketball season over, Dayton’s Obi Toppin has been linked to the Golden State Warriors.

Toppin’s parents joined Sonya and Dell Curry’s podcast “Raising Fame,” and the connection between the Flyer and Golden State grew. Toppin’s parents were asked what team their son hopes to play for in the NBA. Roni Toppin quickly answered, “Golden State — let’s go to the Bay.”

Toppin’s father, Obadiah, agreed with his son’s choice.

I got my few point guards that I always dreamed of playing for — just because they were the truest point guards — like Steph Curry. I think Obi would be great playing with Steph Curry.

After averaging 20 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.2 blocks and one steal per game for the Flyers, Toppin was recently named the 2020 AP National Player of the Year.

The Brooklyn native’s ability to run the floor with unparalleled athleticism would immediately give Draymond Green and Curry another lob threat alongside Marquese Chriss.

With the NBA season on hold due to the coronavirus, Golden State’s front office will have extra time to catch up on their draft homework.
