People are still downplaying Cade? Watch this video and you'll see how he's going to be special on the offensive end. By far the best prospect imo. 6'8 wing with elite passing/playmaking, high ball IQ, can create his own shot, and is an elite shooter.

We won't have a good enough pick to draft him
Prediction, April 2021. Raps will get the #9 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft and select Moses Moody.

Pacers are a scary last minute Tank team. They've been trying hard to win games but they getting hit with a bunch of injuries and might just throw in the towel

Yeah Turner going down on top of Sabonis and Brogdon, who were already out, has made for prime tanking conditions. They looked terrible against the Bulls last night.

I can't imagine any of the bottom 4 passing the Raps (Wiz, Cavs, Pistons, Magic), they're just so bad. It'll come down to Pacers/Bulls doing enough to sneak in.

As for the west, Wolves/Rockets are locks to be worse, and I think Presti over at OKC has already begun sabotaging the rest of their schedule, so that'll be tough.

Raps are looking at 8th pick, unless they win a top 3 lotto ball pull IMO.

We need them and the bulls to stay firm in the play in spots so the team doesn't get any bad ideas.

I still have a little bit of hope that they wizards/cavs could still try to go for it. Beal is back and Westbrook may be terrible at times but he's always gonna try to win. Plus if the Cavs beat us this weekend they hold the tie breaker so we just need to stay near them

I think I would prefer the magic to get the win today vs the wizards. Beal and Hachimura are back and so I feel like the Wiz will steal games here and there. But the magic are young. So them winning games like tonight give us an avenue to possibly catch them.

Too late. Wizards killing the magic.

Nah its better if the Wizards win.
Magic probably have the easiest remaining schedule. So I definitely see them winning some games.

OKC winning tonight would be clutch.

At least I won't be disappointed when we don't land the #1 pick. Silver hates Toronto bro.

I didn't mind Wiz winning I feel like we need some cushion from them. At this point lol wolves are a terrible franchise and I hope they don't get rewarded again.

It's fun keeping tabs on these teams though, so much in play.

If Bulls and Pacers just tread water around .500 for their remaining games that will make it almost impossible for this team to make the play in and makes you wonder if Masai will send the signal to shut it down

Great day for the tank so far.

Wizards are winning and Beal, the anti tank is back. Go for 50 Beal!

Rockets being up on the Mavs is curious not that it matters since they badly want to stay in the top 4.

OKC probably throws this game. They have a back to back tomorrow and will rest their starters.

Take care of business tomorrow and give Chicago the W. They want the playoffs and don't want to give Orlando a good pick. Then on Saturday hand the Cavs another W.

OKC are professional tankers. Look at their lineup card tonight, that's what you'll see the rest of the season.

Horford is out for no reason.
Shai has been out since 3/22 with plantar fasciitis and they're being suuuuuper slow with his return
They traded George Hill for Austin Rivers, then waived him.
They traded Diallo after he earned a spot in the rotation, for futures.
Roby and Dort are out on concussion protocol at the same time.

They won't win much the rest of the way. Their lineup tonight is hilarious (getting blown out by a shorthanded Charlotte)
