    Why would the warriors tank? They don't own their pick this year so it doesn't benefit them at all?
    Huh? Yes, they do. Their pick is top 20 protected this year.

    Funny, I was thinking of including him in there but decided against it. Maybe he should be in it. I agree with your tiers.

    If I were being honest, I'd probably draft Kuminga over Mobley but only because I want to see a long swingman going toe to toe with the likes of Nephew, LeBron, Doncic.
    I would take Kuminga #2 as well.... I'm pretty high on him...

    They do - it’s top 20 protected and then turns into a 2nd round pick.

    Houston and Minnesota are riding the razors edge. They’re well positioned, but their picks are scantily protected. Minny is 1-3 protected, and Hou is 1-4 protected. The past two drafts, 5 teams have jumped into those combined 8 drawn slots.

    Tbh, Wiseman was their tank commander. They'll be better without him.

    It's been about ~6 games since this thread was made.

    As of 4/11/21, the Spurs have a 25-26 record.

    If all non-playoff teams follow their season WIN% for the remaining games:



    If all non-playoff teams follow their WIN% from the Last 10 games for the remaining games:



    Fun fact:

    Every team's last 10 games has mostly remained the same with the exception of:

    The Thunder and the Kings changed from their winning ways and are dropping like an anchor.

    Previous L10 for Thunder = 4 W / 6 L. Now = 1 W / 9 L
    Previous L10 for Kings = 7 W / 3 L. Now = 4 W / 6 L

    The Celtics and the Raptors are starting to win more and are trending up.

    Previous L10 for Celtics = 3 W / 7 L. Now = 7 W / 3 L
    Previous L10 for Raptors = 1 W / 9 L. Now = 4 W / 6 L

    I'm guessing it's going to be pick #12 for the Spurs when it's all said and done.

    Good work, Dejounte.

    I'm still early in my draft prep but it looks like you'll basically get the same level of player from about pick 6 to pick 16 or so. Thus, no real reason to tank right now. There's a razor thin margin starting at 6.

    Might as well try to make the playoffs, tbh.

    Yeah. With the draft odds flattening, if the Spurs make the play-in at 9th or 10th place.. there is still a (very small) chance that they can get into the top 3 picks if the basketball gods favour them. Might as well push to get in to the play-in.

    I think you're right with the pick 6-16 with a lot of guys with tools and potential, the only thing if you go near the 16th pick is that you can forget some big potentials like Jalen Johnson or Scottie Barnes for example. Their ceilling especially Johnson looks a little bit better than some of pursuers.

    Jalen Johnson transferred from his HS in Wisconsin to IMG academy. Lasted 6 games. “Committed” to Duke, and lasted a whole 13 games. He’s a quitter, who also can’t shoot, one of those en led AAU pricks.

    Spurs have a position need. Has to 6’ 7” w:o shoes and a plus wingspan. IMO.

    Should be easy to fill. You don’t even have basketball skills as a requirement. Does he have to be athletic?

    I have a MyPlayer on NBA2K17 which fits these requirements. Where do I sign up?

    true but I responded to the post saying 6-16 was all similarly talented. I assume everyone in that range will meet my minimum skill and athleticism but would not meet my size requirement.

    Edit: My preference to start is an athletic 3&D PF with decent lob threat skills.

    I know that and that's a big question mark with the shoot.
    But I talk only about talent. I think He is ahead of a lot of players.

    Minnesota's results in the draft have been so bad, & now it looks inevitable that they'll get another top 4 pick. And look where they are: their centerpiece Towns is a major defensive liability, and so far neither of their shooting guards (Okogie & Edwards) can shoot. Almost everybody else is gone. They're basically in lottery/rebuild mode after a decade plus of great draft positions. This is one area where the Spurs are still a superior force in the league.

    I am not convinced that this draft is "flat" from 6-16. Hopefully we can ID the right guys and have them fall far enough...

    Spurs worry about more than that. Last guy I remember with Character red flags was KPJ, and he nearly dropped out of the first round. The flags turned out to be warranted. Cleveland dumped him part way into season 2 on his contact to one of the worst teams in the league, for a second rounder.
