Oh well.

But then, one reason the Grizz' pick will be this low is that they got a pretty good player with the 21st pick last offseason.

not sure we could have gotten any unluckier with the sacramento and memphis picks than we did. I hope to god Danny can pull a rabbit out of a hat in this draft but his middle to late round picks have not been great for a long time.

He's gotten Rozier, Olynyk, Grant, Romeo, Bradley, Sullinger in this range in the last 10 years. I think he's obviously capable of drafting a good player in the 15-20ish range.

If they go with the 22 team restart, I wonder what that means for the lottery? Only the 8 that didn't make the cut? Or do they use the finish in the tournament to slot the end of the lottery? Use the current standings for the lottery of 14?

Some teams get screwed no matter how they go. Of course, I really only care about MEM pick. :)
So, I want these new set of games to count.

This is some grade-A bull right here. I'm obviously biased.

It appears the best we can hope for is pick #14?

Did they want to avoid a mini tank contaminating Orlando?

Can we get any higher than pick #14?

Doesn’t seem like it unless we jump up in the lottery.

I don’t know why they didn’t just lock the bottom 8 teams odds and say to the 6 remaining who are playing for playoff seeds, it will be record based for the last 8 games.

The Memphis pick, while a luxury, has lost its importance to me since the pandemic started. Whatever it is, it's a bonus. Jeff F'ing Green. Enough said.

You really think so?

The bottom 8 teams locked into their seedings, with the 6 remaining fighting for either a playoff spot or 9-14 seeding? Teams will really tank that hard for the 9th pick in the draft?

If ever there was a time to have a tournament to win the first overall pick, or at the very least win the best odds this was the year to do it.

After all, they're going to be playing meaningless practices to begin with and televising these games just because the 8 teams dont want to be out of play for 9 months.

The obvious guess is that the lottery teams will be those that actually miss the playoffs, ranked by their records as of March 11. Does this seem to be what is actually going to happen?

Anyhow, the Memphis pick is still protected (1-6), so there's no chance of getting a high pick from them this year in any case.

That is correct. How it will work is 1-8 are locked into their spots. 9-14 will obviously be determined by who makes the playoffs. Once that is determined, for lottery odds, those terms revert back to their records at the time of the suspended season. If Memphis or Orlando or Brooklyn (or I guess Dallas in that extremely unlikely scenario) drop out, they slot into the lottery wherever their record as as of the pause would have landed them. So, 13 or 14 depending on who all gets in.

If Memphis were to jump up in the lotto then we get their pick next year - no protections right?

Not the lotto. Into the top-6. Then fully unprotected in 2021.
