OAKLAND (Bleacher Report) – For the Golden State Warriors, the 2012 NBA Draft needed to be a productive night.

After all, they had sacrificed half of last season just to stay in this lottery.

Luckily, the franchise has had years of practice with high draft picks as last night’s selection was their 12th appearance in the past 12 draft lotteries (two lottery picks in 2001, none in 2007). This year they snapped up Harrison Barnes with pick number seven.

And just as fortunate was the fact that the front office group that had built those lottery-bound rosters was replaced by one with an NBA legend (Jerry West) and a well-connected agent-turned-general-manager (Bob Myers).
