NBA Draft Lottery Open Thread

Go Kings!

The NBA Draft Lottery will air tonight on ESPN beginning at 5:30 PT, which generally means would should know the draft order by around 5:59 PT. Use this as an open thread to discuss the evening's events.

The pre-lottery order we want to hear before the Kings is:

14. Golden State Warriors
13. Indiana Pacers
12. San Antonio Spurs
11. Charlotte Hornets
10. New Orleans Pelicans

If those teams are called in that order, the Kings can pick no lower than 9th. If, after the Pelicans, we hear any name other than Sacramento, it will mean that the Kings have moved into the top 4 in the lottery. If any of those teams are not called in that order, it means someone behind the Kings has moved up and Sacramento is at risk of picking lower than 9th.

Good luck and Godspeed.

The name of Sacramento Kings will be called at the very last………..

We’re gonna move up to the Top 4, copium.
We’re gonna get a good player, copium.
We’re gonna reach the playoffs next year, copium.
We’ll be out of NBA purgatory soon, copium.

So even though it’s supposed to begin at 5:30, are they going to spend like 25 minutes talking before actually doing the announcements?

I think they normally reveal the teams that move up midway through, then the last 4 picks are announced at the end.

Why trade veterans for assets and tank and get a potential 3rd piece for this team? I love the playin game.

Rockets tanked most of the year, as did the pistons. Toronto and Cleveland blatantly tanked later in the year. Kings should have done the same!

Good think the Kings chose to make a run at mediocrity and not tank.

That Raptors spot was there for the tanking.
