3 out of 3.  It is a B2B but Indiana probably won't have Oladipo.

Yeah I hate to say it but it looks like even "best case scenario" is the Kings finishing with the 6th worst record in the league. Realistically it's looking like a pick in the 8-10 range unless SAC seriously regresses and/or some other bottom teams have stellar 2nd halfs of the season

At this rate i think I'd have rather had the Lakers 10th pick last year.  I don't know a ton about the non-Dukies, but at #10 last year we'd have had a choice of SGA, MPJ or one of the Bridges. 
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

8-10 isn't all I was hoping for, but it's not bad. Still a lot of value there to bundle with other assets to move up or get a vet. Just wish Memphis and the Clips hadn't got so good so fast!

Only 5.5 games separate the best record in the west to the 2nd worst record in the west (14 teams) with roughly 60 games left in the season.  Itís fun to see so many teams jumbled up together, and see how this plays out.  A few of the non playoff teams in the east Wizards, Knicks, Heat, and Nets arenít too far behind the Kings either.

I still think by year's end Sactown finishes in the 6-8 spot. I think in that position we would have 3 shots in the 6-10% chance of landing a pick between 2 and 4. Last year the C's would have only 3-5% chance to land at 2 or 3

Yeah, the Kings have less than a 2 game lead over the Timberwolves, Jazz, Pelicans, Rockets, and Spurs. All teams I think are better and are likely to jump the Kings by the end of the season, which would leave the Kings 2nd worst in the West. They may end up better than that, but if we're talking best case scenario, that's it.

Nets absolutely imploded tonight. They have been hot garbage since they lost LeVert

Yuh, that was painful. Problem is gap between a decent playoff spot and 2nd last in the West is tiny. Whereas 11-15 in the East will be miles of a playoff spot, and hence have incentive to tank. I think it's fair to say the pick will slip to around 11-13 I'm sorry to say.

Iím really not sure anymore man. This Kings team is deep and plays hard. DeíAron Fox is going to be the best guard from that draft when itís all said and done, young fella can play. Theyíve got shooting and a lot of defensive versatility. I could see them only landing us the 10-12 pick unfortunately.
Two choices - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The pain of regret hurts a whole lot more.

Sacramento is back in the standings where they belong, the lottery. I still see the following teams surpassing them in the West: Minnesota, Houston, New Orleans (if), Utah and possibly San Antonio. So, there's that. It would make them finish in the bottom 7 after all is said and done. Teams from the East that could also finish ahead of them are Washington and/or Miami. This is, of course, barring trades and injuries and eventually tanking.

I keep waiting for them to hit a bad patch and they keep staying above .500 - as a young group, they may improve as the season progresses. But you gotta think the wear and tear will catch up with Bagley and other young guys. Mophead Fox is the guy making the difference.
