    47.9% chance of picking no. 5 is a huge pain. Run that 100 times and that's a LOT of no. 5 picks piled up.

    - - - - -

    By the by, my favorite way of simulating the draft is using basketball-gm.com... Cool site. It's a whole franchise simulator... every franchise throughout history is in there. I mentioned it before on here and no fellow game nerds replied, but I am nothing if not persistent.

    If we get the fifth pick and none of Jabari, Chet, Banchero, Ivey are there, I hope we trade down and pick up Eason and Duren.

    this thread should be deleted off CF servers effective immediately

    the bad juju emanating from this thread topic is off the charts

    I rebuke it

    the only 5th pick I acknowledge is a #5 bacon and cheese from Whataburger

    Keagan Murray. They need someone who can move off the ball and defend his position with size. He's a big wing and he's ready now to man the sf. Those other guys are projects and are small for their position in my opinion. I'm a Duren fan,but they can get the much needed size at the 4/5 at 17 or 31.

    If we get the 5th pick in the draft, feel free to cry, yell, scream, and let out your frustration here.

    If we don't, feel free to lock this thread up! :)

    If not this thread will get to about 1000 pages of pleasant discourse about all of the options available.

    I like Murray at 5. Wouldn’t be mad if that’s who we end up with. It’s not outside the realm of possibility that Sharpe and Ivey push one of the big guys to 5 either. Last year there was a real threat of completely losing a lottery pick. This time we’re at least guaranteed a legit prospect.

    Fourth is just as bad. Rockets need a BIG.
