NBA Draft 2019

New Orleans won the Zion sweepstakes. I wonder if this means that AD stays? I was actually hoping for this scenario...

As expected the new lottery system made the whole thing quite unpredictable, with the top3 teams having only 14% chance of top pick.

Pelicans rose to the first from 7th place in the draft order and Memphis got second pick from 8th place. Lakers snapped up 4th pick from the unlikely 11th spot. At least the worst team in the NBA (Knicks) got 3rd pick as a consolation.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

This infuriated me as Wolves fan. 23rd time we move down in draft order, while teams in close proximity to our predicted pick move up to 1st, 2nd and 4th. Wolves NEVER moved up, even when draft lottery is changed to give teams with better records higher chance on sweepstakes (to combat tanking), we move down to Lakers projected spot and they get 4th, when they have Lebron, 3 high lottery youngsters and cap space...life ain't fair.




Also this is a weak 3 player draft so it will be interesting to see if Lakers trade the pick, AD package or simply trade down in order.

1. Lakers trade Ball, Ingram, 2019 #4 pick plus a future 1st round pick for AD.
2. Lakers sign Kawhi during free agency.
3. Lakers switch LBJ to point guard.
4. Lakers roll with a starting 5 of LBJ, Hart, Kawhi, Kuz, AD next season.
5. I used the Time Stone to explore different outcomes and the possibility of this happening is 1 out of 1.4000605.

Lakers always signs a star-studded team next season. It's been like this for at least 5 years in a row now.

I also think Zion will return to Duke for his sophomore year now that NOLA won the draft lottery

AD should stay...they could be one of the best teams in the West almost immediately and seriously compete for the title by 20/21.

He should stay, but imo its too late he had complete falling out with the management and the fans. It's a shame, if they keep him and Holiday (likely to be traded too for rebuild, would love him in wolves), and created tiny cap space for quality wing. They would have such a strong team.
