    Very few teams on that list that haven't been laggards for a long time. Some of those teams are chronic laggards at tanking because they are constantly in the lottery

    15% of the league are legit contenders every year
    45% are average
    40% below average

    NBA is all about Playoff basketball thats why so many are able to get in, its what drive fandom and TV contacts. It also helps when LA has a team in them, but thats not the case this year.

    Well if for some reason Cronin is made the permanent GM, I suspect that if this pick is 7th or higher we might see it traded back to the Hornets for their 13th pick which will be used to trade for Jerami Grant the player Cronin, Dame and Chauncey have targeted and the 15th pick that we would use on the BPA. That's unless we move up into the top three and then I could see us using it. All bets are off if the job is given to someone besides Cronin which should be what happens but the Vulcans don't often do what should be done in regards to our team.

    The fixation on Grant baffles me. Looking at various mocks, the 7-10 range has guys like Mathurin, Davis, and Griffon who could have as much or more long term value at less cost.

    Uh yes we DO want to use this pick and if Dame thinks we can get a truly impactful player via trading it (unless it's for multiple picks one of which we swing for Grant which is fine) he is sadly mistaken, especially with Sell Low Joe at the helm other GM's will fleece him.
