Does anyone have ESPN Insider to let us know Pelton's W-L and Standings projections for the Grizz and Kings?

33 for the Griz and 25 for the Kings. Good for the 8th worst and 1st worst records in the league.

Seems we'll be on the edge of our seats all year lol.

Thanks

Isn't Pelton the guy who said his analytics revealed that Jaylen wasn't a top 100 college player in 2016?  Do we trust this guy's projections for team season wins?  How'd he do last year?

Vegas has Sacto #2, Memphis I think I counted #9.  That'd be huge if this draft doesn't suck.

Gasol’s and Conley’s health is fragile, and that can sway maybe 5 to 10 spots.  Plus they lost a key player in Evans.

I don’t see a ton of separation from say the bottom 9 or 10 teams Suns, Kings, Mavs, Grizzlies, Hawks, Bulls, Magic, Nets, Knicks (no Porzingas to start the year), maybe Hornets and even Cavs (those players were fit to surround Lebron’s talents. They could easily fall apart).  Maybe a few teams like the Bulls, Magic, and Mavs (I think they could have the biggest jump in this group) will surprise.

It could be similar to last year where there was a bunch of teams at the bottom of league around the same pace until late in the year where teams started to separate.  I recall at one point last year there were several teams right around 18 wins including the Lakers before they pulled away.

Even if it isn't super strong, teams will be dying to trade for high picks.

Draft Zion as our future small ball 5 for the most fun team ever

I'm curious what we would trade high picks for.  Package Smart, Yabu, Bird, filler ($20M+) and 1-2 picks for a stud, sign Rozier or let him walk, and go over the tax big-time either way?

That's the option I see, and ssuming Kyrie re-signs, it'd put us in a position to pay 4 guys max deals or close to it for the foreseeable future (Kyrie, new stud, Al -> JB, Hayward -> Tatum).

If we don't trade the high picks with salary for a stud, I'm not sure how we'd trade them for value without rolling them over to 2020 basically.  But I could be ok with rolling them over.

If Sacramento pick falls to 5th or 6th and Memphis lands 9th or 10th, it would be nice if Danny could package both picks for the first pick and land the best player in the draft. It would decease the amount of roster slots you would need to open up for so many picks and assure the Cs get the best talent to develop.

I agree about the asset consolidation but my only concern with this is, if it's supposed to be a mediocre draft due to a lack of top end talent, there's a distinct possibility #1 might not be a ton better than #5.  The hype is quiet for an NBA draft and scouts say everyone has warts.

I don’t think that would be enough, to be honest. If there’s enough of a talent gap that we’d want to move up, surely the other team would not also want to move down.

Why is Chandler Parsons starting? Crazy.

Memphis is going for it but they didn't look good last night. The best case for the Celtics, I think, is that they sputter out of the gate and decide their best course is to blow it up and build around Jaren Jackson and their 2019 pick. I think the longer the pick rolls, the more valuable it becomes because the West is going to stay really competitive and any rebuild is going to take a number of years.
