Well many of us did see this coming, voting in the 6-10 range. Not a surprise. I am just concerned we will end up just missing the play-in, or worse, making the play-in, and end up with a pick in the 13-17 range instead of getting a real chance at a high pick. Hopefully the Wolves continue their slide and they net us a top 3 pick. Odd are our own pick won't end up there at this point. Unless we really go on a losing streak. But I see us winning more once Conley returns, enough to keep us at about .500 which would likely be enough for the play-in. Ugh. Can't even tank properly.
I'd honestly rather see us losing while developing our young guys and determining which ones are keepers. The wins were fun but reality is creeping in quickly about our shortcomings. Let the vets play just enough to keep a little flow and to be on court coaches, but give the young guys the majority of the minutes. A competitive tank is the only way to go. Determine who will be staying, develop them and draft according to need. I think this is the way forward.
