Regardless of how it goes, the experience and value of this team making a legitimate playoff run at the end of the season AND gaining postseason experience would be so valuable for all of the young players as well as for Hardy.We get the 6th seed, destroy Clippers in the 1st round, while Minnesota takes care of our draft pick.
I also think Wemby is 3/4 as ridiculous as the 3 might sound... he is not an NBA level elbow warrior but has wing handles, moves and will be a nightmare to guard on the perimeter with the ball with his length and shooting.Meanwhile Wemby has stated he does not want to play Center in the NBA. Kudos to him for seeing his best path is not at the 5.
It also means if the Wolves screw up and we pick 1 thanks to them, we can draft the guy and sandwhich him right between the Finnisher and Walker
they would dominate for a decade buts its a pipe dream as the Jazz continue to win and the Wolves have no incentive to tankLauri
Frontcourt would be something
I would rather see us pick high and our schedule has a rough stretch coming up but if I'm real we are likely a 39-40 win team with Dunn also becoming a late surprise contributor.
I also think it comes down to us vs Minny for the final play-in spot (Lakers come up, OKC and Blazers finish below us, GS makes a late run and Pels have the 2nd easiest remaining schedule)... so obviously rather us than them.
PS: At this point Draftkings agrees. They have Lakers, GSW and Pels with clearly better odds to make the playoffs than us or Minny.
