These types of posts are insufferable.

Nets, Bulls, Hawks, Suns, Pacers, Kings, Knicks should be the bottom 7 in some order. Would guess that the Nets end up worst but wouldn't be surprised by any of them.

I think Indy will be the worst but they're not on that list for some reason.

Nets to me are better then last year while their are 3 teams in the East who will be keeping an eye on how high they will be drafting i.e. bulls, pavers, hawks. I also think they'll add another decent player or 2 before the trade deadline.

Last year as well I think I don't think any team in the East was going out of it's way to lose games, that won't be the case this year.

I did forget the Pacers, but no way they are bottom three. Their organization won't tank-and they have some ok talent.

Turner/Young/Joseph/Olidapo-they'll win 30 at least

They might not have a top 100 player in the league... but they'll be competent everywhere and they are well coached. I think they'd be around 30 wins... a clear step above the bottom dwellers.

Homerism aside, I hope the Nets or the Bulls get the #1 pick. I want to see these teams get young talent once again. Also, let's hope Bagley reclassifies so we can have that Bagley/Porter/Doncic/Ayton/Bamba combo to lead it all up

Yeah - the Knicks, if they lose Melo, will have absolutely no one to run an offense through. They could be an absolute dumpster fire on offense and a bottom 10 defense pretty easily.

KP+Porter/Doncic should be the plan this coming season

Chicago has an awful roster and awful coach

Other tanking teams have Atleast a decent coach

No offense to bulls but I think it's them

So they can't run an offense through KP? Even with Melo, they were 18th in offense, triangle or not.

I love KP, but if you're plan is to run 50 KP isos a game as your best offense... you're going to be losing a lot of games 70 to 100

It's not going to be KP isos, it has to be ball movement and equal shot opportunities.

You know the Knicks were dead last in fastbreak points the last 3 years? Melo isos kill the flow cause it was all half-court.

Pretty clearly the Nets. They have a dearth of talent

Probably the Suns. Playing in a strong conference and they haven't improved as much as the other teams. They will probably tank deliberately next year too.

Purely looking on paper it could be either the Hawks, Bulls or Nets. We'll have to see how their players develop over the season.

I think Schroder is better than many people think, but agree that Atlanta's roster isn't very good right now.

I expect both the Bulls and the Suns to trade what few veterans they have on the roster (Bledsoe, Lopez, Wade, Dudley) and to go all in with playing time for their young guys. I think they'll finish one-two with the edge to the Bulls being the worst because they have less young talent.

I think the Hawks, Nets, Kings, Knicks, Mavs, and Pacers will round out the rest of the bottom; but the Bulls and Suns will be worse.
