I know the timeline won't work out probably, but if NBA is thinking about letting the 8 teams who aren't going to Orlando to play in a "summer league", they should just have them play a tournament to decide #1 pick

Warriors could start Curry-Thompson-Wiggins-Green-Criss with Lee - Paschall- on a Bender- Mulder - and dominate the tournament

I used to go to an annual hip hop show in SF back in the day called “Broke Ass Summer Jam”

That’s what they should call this summer league.

Doesn’t make sense to have THE BEST team of the non playoff teams win the #1 pick lol.

I do like the idea of a summer league for the 8 non playoff teams and maybe throw in A Jalen Green Gleague All-Star Team.

Do something like a 8game exhibition followed by a tournament.

Warriors & Cavs, Hawks probably benefit the most with really young guys on the team to develop.

Bowman
Poole
Lee
Paschall
Chriss
Smailagic
Mulder

All those guys could use more in game experience.

Steve Kerr says the Warriors aren't interested in a summer league with teams two timezones away. None of the other seven eliminated teams are near them geographically: "We'd be more interested in practice time."
