With their 5th best record they had 31,5% chance to draft within top 3 and 8,8% chance to draft 8th. They draft 8th. They couldn't drop pass 9. (0,6% to draft 9th)
With Dallas top 3 protected pick they had 46% chance to draft 9th. They draft 10th with. ( 3% chance to draft worst than 10).
Litearlly by all statistics, it second worst draft scenario possible for them. (worst would be 9th and 11, with almost zero probability to happen. Well there was scenario where Dallas keeps pick , but Hawks had 82% chance of keeping their pick ).
It doesn't matter who they have, this is one of unluckiest scenarios in draft history.
yes, not a great draft scenario. They are still poised to be better than Orlando starting next year.
I don't know about that.
Two late lottery picks , never landed big name FA in history , their ceiling comes down to Young and Collins to take huge leap in development.
Maybe they can do it, maybe they can't. But i don't see them beng in playoff race next year.
