    That's how Woj made it sound. Pretty sure it's the Bucks' pick, though.

    Sad indeed. Kings are still rebuilding with so many picks. Let's all start hoping we will be bad right now, and they will be bad after we become good.
    Geesh, this has to be most healthy mind state for a sports fan.

    Thanks for the clarity. So either we tank and wind up in the top 4 or we get the Heat #1 and the Blazers #1 this summer. I actually think a top 4 finish is possible, especially with our bad start.

    F tanking.

    No way Rockets end up with worse record than TWolves, Kings, Wizards, Pistons.

    Trade Oladipo + however many of those butt wipe worthy picks for Beal.

    Build around Beal-Wood and call it a day.

    Seriously, bunch of whining .

    This was a haul long term. People around here are comically myopic wanting decent players that serve no purpose for the next few years. Our only goal is to accumulate assets.

    you are correct, there's a lot of misinformation about our trade with OKC

    They can swap with us this year, however it's top 4 protected. They have a swap in 2025 as well which is top 20 protected.

    They own our picks in 24' and 26' which are both top 4 protected.

    Yes, if we're bad enough the next 5 years (including this season) we can retain all our picks. The issue is, as constructed our current team is bad but not bad enough to get a top 4 pick unless the lottery balls fall our way.
