Default 2019 NBA draft

Mavs probably drafting 10-20 and that pick going to ATL. We only keep our pick if we REALLY suck

Still, things are slow and 36 days to go until camp

Zion absolutely tearing it up for Duke tonight. 21 pts in a half, 29 overall

Barrett with 34

Both are fun to watch even though Duke are the Yankees of NCAA basketball

Daniel Gafford will get top 5 consideration and make a team very happy.

Too early to really speculate how things will fall for the draft. It's not a 16 game NFL season. It's a long 82 game grind, and we're not even 10 games into it.

Before the season started the Lakers were chosen as a lock for a playoff spot. It's not too surprising that we lost to them, but it was disappointing given the circumstances. Same goes with the Spurs. We even made it interesting against the Raptors. That's 3 of our 7 losses.

Last year the Suns swept us, but I still feel like we should have beaten them this year. We made it interesting until we couldn't do anything in the final 6 minutes. The Hawks, Jazz, and Knicks are the other teams to beat us. Sure, you'd think we could at least win 1 of those. At this point you could totally expect a few more wins, which would place us in a 3-way tie with the Thunder and Grizzlies with one of us sitting in 9th.

Do we want to flirt with the playoffs or keep some level of excitement and hold on to our #1 pick next year? Right now it's looking good for us, but if the ball drops like it did last year we could end up with the #6 pick and lose it to the Hawks.

I didn't realize that we're giving up the 1st round pick no matter what. As long as Atlanta has a 1st round pick coming from us I think we cannot tank. And no matter what they're getting it by 2023. That concerns me. We definitely gave up a lot for Dončić. And while it's unlikely, we don't want to be so bad by 2023 that we give them the top pick overall in the NBA draft. That's a minute possibility.

We definitely want it to convey before 2021 (or is it 2022 now?) when its likely that the draft will be open to high school seniors again. That year, pick 20 may have almost the value of a top 10 in another year.

We keep it if it's top-5 (after the lottery)... But we need to be trading our vets for whatever picks we can get at this point, no reason we can't wheel & deal our way to a high pick.

Then it's top 5 protected in 2020 though. Right?
