So we end up with a top pick what guys are we drafting that would directly improve the team now not down the line?
Embiid, Wiggins, Parker, Hood? If we get the protected pick I think we would get a player that could help. If we don't then I think we would be making a trade like we did last year anyway.
They made a move for an elite PG and got one. This team is very talented and 1 or 2 role players away from being very good. It obviously seems weird to the spectator some of the player rotations Monty puts on the floor and maybe his coaching should be questioned. I can't see us finishing in bottom 5 once Evans comes back, but I could be wrong. We will probably miss the playoffs and hopefully the basketball gods help us win the lottery.
