    I think we should tank this year trying to get to bottom 3 of the league, in that case we'll have a 52% probability to keep our pick. We won't make the playoffs even if we try really hard, the end result, would be us ranking around 22 in the league, having a 90% chance of getting a pick around 8 to be swapped by the Thunder using the Heat's pick. I would prefer having 50% chance to keep the top 4 pick to draft CC. Winning like 10 more games and missing the playoffs don't make much sense to me.

    the tank is on.... the thing is I have no doubt even if we end up with a young superstar from one of those picks tillman will still cheap out fight to stay under the tax. this franchise is fukked going forward either way as long as he's here.

    dont trust Levert. There was a real risk his perceived value declined with the Rockets.

    Oladipo, as an asset...I like that a lot. Plenty of teams see him as a near all-star. We very likely get a good package for him alone.

    Watch Denver.

    I was just told 4 picks, 4 swaps and Victor Oladipo. I didn't want to believe it and i'm still in shock the Rockets made that bad of a trade.

    Lavert is a better asset than Oladipo though, this sucks.

    He's been washed since his injury unfortunately. Every now and then, he'll give you efficient offensive games, but he's certainly not consistent.

    no he’s an UFA in 2021 so they will free up money for the market.

    20/4/5. 36% 3pt shooter. Barring injuries, he is better than Levert. Levert is your typical garbage stat player

    Why do we want a shorter player?

    I was really looking for us to get Allen as well as part of this. Wood is better at the PF position, not C. We need to update the PF or the C role urgently, by either shifting Wood to the PF position, or by upgrading from PJ. Something tells me we'll see some movement here involving PJ and possibly House at some point.
