The team isn't going to tank in the sense that they try to lose games and have the worst record in the league. They will try to win - but it remains to be seen if they actually will or not.
Signing Rozier is an indicator of all that. The could have let Graham start or have tried to sign someone worse & cheaper just to fill out the roster.
With the flatter lottery odds and it now being 4 selections instead of 3 there is a lot less incentive to be as bad as possible. If we're in the bottom 7 that's not a bad place to be.
